Dearest Minnie, I hope you like the Galle glass, of which I send you a cup that can serve for violets or pansies or other things that suggest pleasant thoughts, and will you think me too practical if I send with it some Bristol plates I found in an old shop in England and which you will admit ought to belong to you. I can not wish you Gǣa merry XmasGǥ, but at least I trust it brings some peace and the beginning of a new happiness which after all may be better than the old. Lovingly yours, Mary E.G.
