I do really feel its so kind of you to send by letter enquieries about me, I am thoughtful to say I am well, only my old cough has been and still is very troublesome. I shall not expect you much as I wish to see you, until the weather changes for the better. I had a nice letter at Xmas from my Brother, and they were all quite jolly and dear Mary sent me a very beautiful card for the season. With much love & many thanks for your kindness.
