My Dear Mrs. Darnell,

  I received your favor of the 12th instant and read it with the utmost pleasure and amusement.  Indeed, we felt no less honored to receive you both into our home, and you must promise it will not be your last visit.  I was particularly gratified to view your miniature of Mr. M–’s birthplace.

     Enclosing a thousand wishes for your happiness and prosperity on every and many Christmas days to come, I remain ever your,

    This Was Very Cool, Peeps. 🙂

  2. The highlight of our many visits to Gettysburg was meeting Gen and Mrs Grant and Gen Robert E. Lee. But we never got a note from them! Excellent indeed! Patty

  3. Ran into Teddy Roosevelt at Sagamore Hill last August; he also looked bully.

  4. Omy gosh those are gorgeous flower arrangements! Especially for fall/winter!
