My Dear Mrs. Wallace1
I have thought of you this Christmas & often wondered how you are, I do hope better & able to get about again it must be such a trial not to be able to walk, I don't know what I should do. We saw in the "Standard" the request of Mr. James Merchant for letter, & before Christmas a week or 2 weeks? ago Liz wrote enclosing a portait like these also the letter about them from [] Dr. Wallace, I think he said he liked these better than proffessional ones -- she has never weard whether Mr Marchant has recieved them, I have over 40 letters -- most -- interesting I think about plants and gardening, but perhaps I had better not send so many, just the most intersting. I waited till the Chrismas traffic was over before sending these to you or my letter to Mr Marchant, his has the plate & got a chemist here to print these, she has no appliances now for doing them herself. I hope Violet & Will are both better,
With love to you all | Yours affec[tionately] [illeg.]
Mary Evans [signature]
