Dear Daisy-
I have just written your address on an envelope, and if my eyes hold out will endeavor to supplement the same with a few lines which I trust may fall to you in pleasant places and so make some amends for their intense stupidity! I am glad to know you enjoyed the reading of Bru_Jim's Baby I wish I could have sent it to you in book form but I have never seen it bound over to keep the piece__! To me it seemed exceedingly quaint & enjoyable and I was glad to know you had not read it-so that the treat might come to you from me-. The laborious attempt to improvise a chapel and get up a Christmas tree, each minor taxing his memory for some appropriate contribution.
The once bairn sitting on the anvil while they studied the thing ah, & above all their idea of catechism "a lot of questions which only children can answer not realizing that the children had been previously instructed=To me it was intensely funny - and pathetic withal!

We were very much pleased with your friend Ethel - as for Harold S he seemed like an "auld acquaintance". we regretted that they could not have come earlier while the leaves were on the trees - but this season even the Virginia creeper an the red maple failed to glow- and it was an unusually somber landscape they saw-
However they have promised to come again - when I trust the trees will be arrayed I their sumptuous appendages of the glad summer time. It was so nice to see some one who had seen you all so recently & we enjoyed it in spite of the lack of foliage & flowers- Here come Edith for the mail- Good bye with lots & lots of love to you each & all. As ever and always affectionately
Your aunt Lib_
