Dear Aunt Bell & Girls: A Happy New Year! I'm sorry this is so late but I wanted to write a few lines when sending it and there wasn't a chance to think right before Christmas. We couldn't spend Christmas with Dad & all as they went to Toronto & it was too far to go with chores to do at home. Herb's brother, wife & daughter were here from Buffalo New York also his sister, her husband and 4 months' old son from down the hill. You see we live at the top of a very steep hill so that is why we say she is down at the foot of the hill. There were 9 counting us. Do you have presents and a goose or turkey? We always do. Sometimes it seems as though some people miss the true meaning of Christmas but we try to remember and for weeks before you can hear the humming of Christmas Carols in a good many homes. At our Mission Circle meeting last Friday we sang carols from all over the world. It seemed to draw all nations to-gether. How are Aunt Maggie and all her family? I wish she would write to me again. You see I haven't been able to go to see Mama since she asked me to take the letters & I feel it my duty to do that before writing to her. We had planned to go just before this snow storm & now the roads are blocked nearly all over. But I haven't forgotten & if a chance comes I will do it. I had the nicest letter from Kay and Aunt Aggie in South Africa. It is so good to hear from you all. What are you girls doing these days? Do you keep house Isabel? Wouldn't it be wonderful if we should see you some day? It was mama's wish all her life to go back home for a visit or have you come out here. Goodness, but homesickness is terrible. It was just a month since I was home but I was sure glad to go to-day. We found Dad & the boys fine & still excited about Christmas & all their gifts. Does Aunt Maggie live far from you? I wish I had a picture of all of you. We are hoping to have a picture of our family next summer. I'll send one if we do. Goodness, I'll have to go as the paper is done. Bye now & please write soon. ????

Season's Joy Your Lonly Cousin, Frank Whelan - I would also appreciate it is you would let me ?? what white Xmas does for you by doing a little bit of writing to your Cousin! Lots of Love xxx I wish you could find me a couple of slick chicks about fifteen or sixteen years of age; who are willing to write to me, I am the second youngest. (Frank)
