dc.description.transcriptionJanuary 3 Dear Mr. Carter: The enclosed letter from Amon came this morning and although you have received mail dated after this letter I know you and Katrine will be interesting in reading this one. I am finding it rather difficult to write my appreciation for the presents you sent me in behalf of Amon jr. Even one knowns without elaboration what six pairs of nylons and a beautiful bag means to a girl of this age and items being extra and the other just plain hard to find. But just in case there is any doubt, let me assure you I feel as if I were luckiest girl in Dallas or Fort Worth. There is nothing that makes a prison feel so dressed up as a washed out as the stockings she dons consequently I feel as though I am qualified to look pretty good for a change with a little leeway, still knowing that the from last year carefully locked away except for the most important of occasions. We all enjoyed the fruit basked even though it always hurts my feelings to tear apart the cellophane and reveal the arrangement. There's nothing better and sweet in the morning than a tasty grapefruit. Thanks a million for everything, and my berry best wishes to you, Ruth, and Katrine for the new year. Sincerely, Jean
