Dear Mrs. Addison-
Your lovely parcel came yesterday & helped make what would ordinarily have been a very drab Christmas into something that came very close to being a enjoyable day.
I say close, because we couldn’t really “let ourselves go” due to the proximity of a lot of Jerries just 400 yards up the road.
Still, we did have a good deal to eat & that in itself was quite an occasion, again due largely to your efforts.
Now, I am bound to ask, & (I guess you rather expect me too) about just how I came to be the recipient of a parcel from you? I can rather guess that you are a friend of Mothers, but I can only surmise that from your address.
Am I right or wrong?
Whichever it is it doesn’t really matter, but thank you once again for your wonderful parcel, & that does matter!
