Dear Doris

We are having wintery weather 10° this morning & 20° at 12 Oclock with a foot of snow on the ground they had to plough out the roads Sunday morning & its been cold all the week. But the oil man said we were lucky. I suppose he meant, having not had it before.

I am alone today she went over to Randolph she had an engagement with Mrs Austin her hairdresser who has Xmas presents for us both, but has been unable to get to us on account of bad health & the weather. Mary Winslow, the town managers wife gave me a bottle of ginger ale & a glass of jelly. as usual. the same last year that little whistling tea kettle is a source of much pleasure to us both. its very cute & pretty. the tea is my kind mixed tea & I have ordered some more so I shant come short. I never drink anything else. But ginger tea I love, never care for coffee but could drink it just as well as I dont dislike it always had it when Arthur lived but never at my fathers home. He loved his tea & always had it three times a day.
