Letters from Larry – 11 December 1941

11 December 1941 – Queens, New York

This is a pink birthday card – the cover has a young woman arranging flowers, with a gold ribbon tied through the card.

On the front of the card, it says:

To You at Sweet Sixteen

Inside the card, it says:

Your sixteenth Birthday is the day

When life has never seemed so gay.

The world looks bright and brave and new,

And evidently made for you.

Oh, I wish you neither wealth nor fame,

But just that you’ll always feel the same!

Handwritten underneath the poem:

To Marion

With love

From Larry
