My Dear Son

  I know you can't 

read just yet so Mummy

will have to read you

this letter which, if the post

goes as usual, will reach

you on your birthday

morning. On the great day

on which you attain to the

dignity of reckoning your age

by years instead of months

I want to wish you very 

many happy returns of the day
