Dear Linda and Norma,
My darlings, you look so sweet in your picture that I just had to write you about it. My how you are growing and getting prettier all the time.
I ordered dolls for both of you from Santa Claus and you will be receiving them soon. Next year at Xmas, I'll be home and see that Santa brings a nice couch and chair for your room. Won't that be swell?
Did you get the books I sent you? There are several and I hope you enjoy reading them.
Good night my darlings. Linda, you haven't written to Daddy lately. Have you been too busy?
