My dear Daughter,
It is customary at this season of the year to make presents of useless things. I have no taste in selecting them and so send you my check for fifty dollars for you to use to buy a present for yourself and little Sally. I was in Boston a few days ago and sent George some cigars which I trust he received.
With much love for you your affectionate father,
