My dearest Lynette.

You may get this a little early, but as the post is very erratic at this time of the year I would rather be early than late. The enclosed cheque isn't as much as I'd like it to be but I hope it's enough to get you & little Nellie something for her birthday. It's hard to believe that she is 2 years old. I wonder what she'll think to the new baby. I'm so glad you are getting less sickness John tells me & that you now have a little circle of young mothers to meet with & compare motherhood & all it entails. I feel you are not so alone this time. I know you will cope just as courageously. This time & my thoughts and prayers are with you every minute. I hope 1995 will bring you & yours all the happiness & joy you deserve. Phil came in yesterday with my usual Xmas plant, a red poinsettia, the first time I've seen him since last Xmas. Of course he's very concerned about his mother. I spoke to her on the phone a day or so ago & she said at the moment she has no pain & has her sister looking after her. She is coming to lunch with us on Xmas day. Phil says there'll be 9 altogether, so I think that's Ada's 2 daughters, son in law & 2 Grandsons, Tess & Marcus. Will write you afterwards & tell all. Love
