It seems to me you have a birthday this month so I guess I’d better send you the same as I did John & David. This one is different however because it will be a mixed up one. Bought in shillings and then when you get the money it will be in dollars. How do you like that? Wouldn’t it be a surprise if when you went to cash it you would get 12/9 instead of the two bucks?
I guess I received a letter from you just the other day thanking me for the Christmas present I sent you – That just about slipped my mind. So I really owed you a letter.
Well, I hope I won’t have to send John any present for his birthday from overseas but one never can tell.

This is a bear a greeting for your birthday, and the wish for another good year to you and yours. We have just passed a great crisis, but Etta is now so much better. Much love to all
