1A good & happy New Year to you all, dear. Dot & Ursula came back from
2the hospital in France where they are nursing to day. It is sweet to
3see them. Oliver has not got back the full use of his arm yet & I
4believe never will. Betty looked well & happy when I saw her last a
5few days ago.
7Love to you dear
