My dear Alice
Helen Peck's husband name is Sanford Lyon. He has for many years been Stanley Linn's best friend and so far as there was a best man Stanley was he. We are going to have all the Linns of the 2d & 3d generation for Xmas dinner at H. H. [page 2] John Ethel & Winthrop arrived today, Stanley is still at H. H. and the other two families will come.
It would be awfully nice if you should change your mind & come after all. I go to Washington to the Am. Economic Ass'n the Wed. after and will be gone until Sat. the 30th of Dec.
Always, Dear Alice, your loving sister J. A.
