        Dear Parents 

How happy your little daughter is to be able, at the beginning of this New Year, to express all her gratitude for the immeasurable goodness with which you ceaselessly surround my childhood. Oh yes dear Father and beloved Mother, your child deeply feels how much she owes you, and she thanks you so much and prays so fervently to God to keep you for a very long while yet in her [1 v°] filial love

                Your affectionate little daughter

                         Marie Martin
