NOTE FROM MRS, PUTMAN
?5 B. Dow ling Ave.,
Toronto, Canada, Jan. 13. 11)1.1.
My dear friends at Berea:
It seems somewhat late to acknow.
ledge your beautiful Christmas gins
to me. 'My goods were delayed in hM
ment and 1 did not receive them un
til Jan. 9th. Under the circumstances,
It seems wise to thank you, one and
all. thru The Citizen.
When 1 learned of your gift. 1
took great pleasure in picturing
each article. Bui realization far ex
ceeded anticipation. I never saw tuth
a beautiful coverlid. Tho pattern Is
choice and the weaving is the work
of an artist. This Is equally, true of
the pillow cover nnd towel. 1 am
very proud of them nil.
But, dear friends, more precious m
me than these gifts is the thought
that prompted them. You have ever
been kind to me, charitably hiding
my faults, magnifying my virtues and
Inspiring me to noble endeavor. .My
sincere desire li to be worthy of
jou, my friends.
