3My dear Laddie

5I tried to get that little book “German Social Democracy during the
6war,” by Bevan for but none of the book sellers have got it. They
7are boycotting it I think. So I’ve written to the publisher to send
8you a copy. It’s a little New Year love token from me. I do hope you
9have heard from our boy.

11Your little sister

14I thought you did not look well on Sunday, & also as if something
15special was pressing on you. I can imagine several things that are
16doing so; but I may be wrong.

18How little we can really do to help each other, but my love is always
19with you.
