Dear Grandma and All:-

First, I want to thank Grandma for the very nice letter you wrote me and then I wish to thank you all for the present which was enclosed.

I recieved a great many and some very nice presents. I cannot write all that I got but will mention a few. There were ninteen books, right solid silver spoons, three cups and causers, five handkerchiefs, a beautiful toilet set from Grandma Skinner[1], a silver thimbal from Grandma Youngs[2] and many other things. I would like to come to Galesburg to see you all and then I can tell you more about it.

Lovingly

Edna[3]

Your Great-Grand-daughter
And Grand-neice
[1] Lois (Keith) Clark Skinner, Sarah’s stepdaughter (Luke’s daughter by his first wife, Minerva (Payson) Keith)

[2] Rhoda Youngs, Edna’s maternal grandmother
