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

Christmas 1922
