Dear Aunt Cora:-

At last I am going to send you Winifred’s[1] doll’s bonnet. It has been a long time getting started and I do hope that it will fit the doll now that she has got it. Tell Winifred that mother[2] made it last November when she was lying in the bed.

We are all usually well here. Mother and Helen Katharine[3] have gone visiting and I am left to get dinner for the boys[4] and father.[5]

Again hoping the bonnet will be all right.

I am your loving niece[6]
