Papa


Note:

Papa -

Here's the best Christmas greeting
that was ever had,
And I'm sending it straightaway
To you, my dad
It's coming real early 'cause
I heard you did
Let the cellar stair hit you
And break a rib.
I know it must knit very slow
So I pray that this
May help to while some hours 'way

From your little Miss
"Toots"

Further Instructions

You all might remember this note from a while back:


Two notes (one and a half, really - bottom note has been torn) -

Rhubarb for breakfast please -

NO sugar added -

I like it plain and tart - not sweet

---

...over the kitchen and pantry and the ceiling is very thin. ??? please ask Beeko (?) and Josephine to talk softly till nine o'clock.

Thank you.

We are going out to lunch, and we'll plan something you can leave for us tomorrow night in icebox.


I have found a similar note in similar handwriting. I have to believe it's from the same author. Even the text matches up:


Everything was delicious last night AHN. The turkey was tender and fine and the potatoes lovely and pie, etc.

Will you please talk in a low voice in the morning till nine o'clock as it wakes our guest out of a sound sleep...
