My dear little Granddaughter,

I have been wondering id you are going [to] hang up your stockings, like the little folks on this card & see what Santa will bring you. Of course he is not — to forget, little Elizabeth. We are coming up Christmas day if nothing happens to prevent. I wish you a —- happy time this Christmas.

Much love, Grandmother
