Transcription:
November 28, 1942/Dear Miss Breed, /I cannot express my gratefulness for sending me such excellent books of my favorite American. "The Little Giant" is a very well written book for reading and also history use. "Abe Lincoln's Other Mother" certainly must have been a great insperation to him./Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our dining room was beautiful decorated with flowers made by the mothers of my block. I received light and dark meat of turkey with fruit cake and jello for dessert. After such a delicious dinner I went to an enjoyable party. /Little Thomas is no longer little. He certainly is putting on weight rapidly, tipping the scale at 28 pounds. On the 27th he was exactly 10 months. In two more months he will be a year old; I can hardly wait for that day. Incidentally two more teeth have added making it eight./I asked Florence to write you a letter. She was in a rush to go to a party so it is not as neat as it should be; but I think she is improving./Please give our regards to Miss McNary./Sincerely,/Margaret Ishino

DEAR MISS BREED,/HOW ARE YOU?/I HAD A NICE THANKSGIVING WITH TURKEY. I WAS 7 YEARS OLD JUST BEEORE THANKSGILING THOMAS IS A BIG BABY NOW. I CAN CARRY HIM. PLEASE WRITE TO ME WHEN YOU HAVE A CHANCE
Florence
