My dear Friend,
I am staying up to my sunny & cosy room this A M. It is not as frosty to day, as it has been for a few days. I wish you a merry Christmas & a jolly & happy new year. I respond many thanks to you for the box full of bounties that I rec'd with so much pleasure & joy this week, ere Christmas. There was not of any injury about the nice box, & is all safe. I wished to write you before, but my time was so crowded with business, & etc. I should be happy to send you a gift, for a new year. Do not think of a thing as a token. I was ill a few days, & feel so languid most of time I will write you again some time. God bless you during a happy new year. I'm so busy now.

Your loving friend

L D Bridgman.
