Dec 25
Sermon Isiah 60.-1.2.3.
Merry Christmas & C [?] - Eva was over
early with her presents. I went
to church, Papa came in too. He
was uptown. I was going to stay
after church but I came home
with him. The first thing we saw was
the deer’s head, & then Dr Harry sent
me a lovely 2 lb. box of candy, papa 3 boxes of
cigars & Mrs Tulley sent mamma a handker-
chief. Mrs Overholt sent a teapot handle.
Ate & ate till we are sick. Tom brought
his presents in. Lizzie brought me a pretty little
blue pincushion. I was down to Smith’s for
some grapes for Eva as she was afraid.

Papa took a chest protector to Dr.
McCoy. Dr Abbot sent it I did not
have time to say what mamma
