December 25

      Merry Christmas – and a lovely one

too inspite of the lack of some familiar

faces around the Yule log. Santa Claus

came on schedule and gave me some

sensational presents: Parker fountain

pen; downy comforter; silver for my

Hopeless Chest; War Bond; wallet;

scarf; mittens; raincoat; wool dress;

stationary; compact; jewelry; wallet;

leg makeup; stockings (prizes!); slippers;

manicuring set; cologne and all sorts

of wonderful (and rousingly practical)

gifts. Cary and CB came out for

a turkey dinner – and inbetweentimes,

Glory, Doris, Joanie, Audrey and

Jack; Mrs. Brennan, Pat and

Stan came. (Bill sent me Heaven

Scent cologne and dusting powder)

Spoiled brat, say I, but I beam!

     If only the war were over ---

but – Hell!
