January 1st, 1961
New Year’s Day, and I am thinking about what a happy day I spent with you folks in your home on Christmas Day.
I felt I must thank you again for having me and to tell you how much I enjoyed being with you. You cannot imagine what it means to one with no family ties left, to have dear friends on such a day.
Thank you again for a lovely dinner and companionship, and for the lovely sweater and ear rings.
Thanks, too, for dear David’s kindness to me on the occasion of our trip to Lafayette. I love him dearly.
When thanks are in order, I always think of Doctor’s kindness to my dear Lloyd, which I assure him will never be forgotten.
May the New Year bring continued happiness to all your dear ones and you, and a special prayer for Becky.
Forgive me useing the typewriter, but it is so much easier for me than trying to hold a pen for any time. My fingers just don’t seem to want to do it.
