It is wet, muddy, and oftentimes cold here. But I'm all right. Received the box of candy from the folks at Lake City. Thank them for me. Also got a snapshot of you and the child. I think you are much nicer looking than the girl whose picture was superimposed. You should have received $75.00 and $25.00 I had sent home out of my pay. It was some time ago. Let me know about it. Don't send too much for Christmas. Not all at once anyway; as it is difficult to carry too much extra food. I appreciate your consideration in picking out things I most like. I'm proud of your work at the office. Also of your studying on the side.
I love you very much. Melvin
