Orlando, W. Va.
The snow has been falling for Christmas. The hills are white. The house top and trees are white. School is out for one weekand I am glad of it. We had a program at school & Sando Clase & his wife was at school Fri.

Well Christmas always comes and go but I don't always get to be with you on this day- and evening. Hope to be with you many more Christmases, for it doesn't seem right unless I am around here.
Always your friend,
The snow is falling sleepily
Upon the sleepy town.
The little flakes, like jeweled stars
Are softly drifting down.
They fall upon the little church,
Theyfall upon the square;
They drift upon the leafless trees
Like blossoms pale and fair.
