My dear Frank,
I think it is about time I should write and thank you for the lovely present you sent me I was delighted when I got it on St. Stephen's morning. I was going to send you some books but we were very busy around Christmas and the time slipped by without me ever getting them I will send them on later on. We got our holidays a fortnight before Christmas and they are not over yet. The teacher lives down in Tipperary so she went home for christmas and did not return yet she got a bad cold she wrote to the person once and nobody heard of her since.
We had a good fall of snow around Christmas time.
I have a lot of post-card now George and Annie has twice more than me. I will send you some when I am sending you the books.
George was delighted at the books and watch you send him, he is very fond of reading.
I like reading fairy tales or school stories. Annie's watch was very nice she was delighted at it, every one in the house has a watch now alto me. We bought a Gramophone at an auction.
I will close now as I have no more to write about, be sure and write soon. Hoping you are well. I remain,
Your loving sister,
