December 13, 1913

It’s just about time to ring in 1914, but you’re not really in the festive spirit for parties or even a small dinner with friends. You’ve travelled the globe, eaten so many strange-looking foods, slept in tents and huts and out under the stars. None of that stopped you from doing what you liked. And now that you’re back in the States? You, the mighty explorer, have been felled… by a common cold.

In a vain attempt at being productive you’ve decided to organize all of your Christmas cards and New Year’s greetings. However, your dedication to the task is waning and it doesn’t take much for you to get engrossed in a Christmas letter from your dear friend, (DW):

Dear (Your Name),

I hope this letter finds you well and resting at home though in this season of joy (and colds!) I expect you are in bed with a hot water bottle – just like you always used to be when we were girls! I must…

…And now I must tell you all about the family –

DH has finally agreed to retire! The whole family is so pleased. His health isn’t what it used to be and the doctor says it would be good for him to rest for a while. I’m looking forward to spending more time with him… though I’m not quite sure what he’s going to do with himself now that he has time on his hands!

DD1 and her husband welcomed yet another set of twins to their brood this past September. I have no clue how she gets anything done with six under ten running about. And do you know what (DD1's husband's name) did to celebrate the boys’ birth? He bought one of those noisy automobiles! Why, DD1 is nearly as distrustful of those machines as I am!

DD2 and her family have moved into a new apartment at 35 West (type of tree) Street, apartment 5B. The boys have painted their room (color) while the girls insisted on (color) and (color) stripes.

DS1 recently earned a promotion. In his new position as (you pick a promotion for the occupation you rolled) he is looking forward to (you pick).

DS2’s father-in-law has officially handed his (DS2’s occupation) business/store to DS2 and his wife, (DS2’s wife). The two of them enjoy running it day to day.

DD3 got a job (part-time) at the local library. Ever since her husband quit his job and entered medical school, even a little bit extra income has helped them get by. He’s hoping to (pick a field of medicine for him to go into – remember, this is 1913!).

DS3, on the other hand, has just exited his pharmacy course at university. He’s now a full-fledged pharmacist with a wonderful wife, beautiful daughter, and a bright future.

DD4 is still as exuberant as you remember, even at 15. I love her spunk, but some of the things she does are a little… heedless. She’s still in correspondence with that young tutor and I know he’s a positive influence on her. However, she has also begun a correspondence with his young pupil – a senior university student named First (Disney hero) Middle Last (Starts with G). Her father and I are a little worried that she’s infatuated with him. He’s far too impulsive to be a role model. But, then again, that’s probably why they get along so well.

…sic part of letter…

Love,
DW

Ethel and her family have moved into a new apartment at 35 West Elm Street, apartment 5B. The boys have painted their room blue while the girls insisted on pink and purple stripes.

William Jr. recently earned a promotion. In his new position as a dean he is looking forward to spending more time with Anka and Rosie.

Henry’s father-in-law has officially handed his grocery business/store to Henry and his wife, Alice. The two of them enjoy running it day to day.

Mary got a job (part-time) at the local library. Ever since her husband quit his job and entered medical school, even a little bit extra income has helped them get by. He’s hoping to research new vaccines.

James, on the other hand, has just exited his pharmacy course at university. He’s now a full-fledged pharmacist with a wonderful wife, beautiful daughter, and a bright future.

Eve is still as exuberant as you remember, even at 15. I love her spunk, but some of the things she does are a little… heedless. She’s still in correspondence with that young tutor and I know he’s a positive influence on her. However, she has also begun a correspondence with his young pupil – a senior university student named Peter Edward Glass. Her father and I are a little worried that she’s infatuated with him.

Dear Amelia,

I hope this letter finds you well and resting at home though in this season of joy (and colds!) I expect you are in bed with a hot water bottle – just like you always used to be when we were girls! I must…

…And now I must tell you all about the family –

Alexander has finally agreed to retire! The whole family is so pleased. His health isn’t what it used to be and the doctor says it would be good for him to rest for a while. I’m looking forward to spending more time with him… though I’m not quite sure what he’s going to do with himself now that he has time on his hands!

Nora and her husband welcomed yet another set of twins to their brood this past September. I have no clue how she gets anything done with six under ten running about. And do you know what Ezekiel did to celebrate the boys’ birth? He bought one of those noisy automobiles! Why, Nora is nearly as distrustful of those machines as I am!

Hermia and her family have moved into a new apartment at 35 West Oak Street, apartment 5B. The boys have painted their room blue while the girls insisted on pink and white stripes.

Trey recently earned a promotion. In his new position as Head of the Advisory Board he is looking forward to being able to mold young minds through the rewriting of the curriculum.

William’s father-in-law has officially handed his Grocery store to William and his wife, Ruby. The two of them enjoy running it day to day.

Tessa got a job (part-time) at the local library. Ever since her husband quit his job and entered medical school, even a little bit extra income has helped them get by. He’s hoping to become a Surgeon.

Zach, on the other hand, has just exited his pharmacy course at university. He’s now a full-fledged pharmacist with a wonderful wife, beautiful daughter, and a bright future.

Ginny is still as exuberant as you remember, even at 15. I love her spunk, but some of the things she does are a little… heedless. She’s still in correspondence with that young tutor and I know he’s a positive influence on her. However, she has also begun a correspondence with his young pupil – a senior university student named Phoebus Michael Gregory. Her father and I are a little worried that she’s infatuated with him. He’s far too impulsive to be a role model. But, then again, that’s probably why they get along so well.

December 13, 1913

It’s just about time to ring in 1914, but you’re not really in the festive spirit for parties or even a small dinner with friends. You’ve travelled the globe, eaten so many strange-looking foods, slept in tents and huts and out under the stars. None of that stopped you from doing what you liked. And now that you’re back in the States? You, the mighty explorer, have been felled… by a common cold.

In a vain attempt at being productive you’ve decided to organize all of your Christmas cards and New Year’s greetings. However, your dedication to the task is waning and it doesn’t take much for you to get engrossed in a Christmas letter from your dear friend, Ava:

Dear Lily,

I hope this letter finds you well and resting at home though in this season of joy (and colds!) I expect you are in bed with a hot water bottle – just like you always used to be when we were girls! I must…

…And now I must tell you all about the family –

Robert has finally agreed to retire! The whole family is so pleased. His health isn’t what it used to be and the doctor says it would be good for him to rest for a while. I’m looking forward to spending more time with him… though I’m not quite sure what he’s going to do with himself now that he has time on his hands!

Eva and her husband welcomed yet another set of twins to their brood this past September. I have no clue how she gets anything done with six under ten running about. And do you know what Hugo id to celebrate the boys’ birth? He bought one of those noisy automobiles! Why, Eva is nearly as distrustful of those machines as I am!

Helga and her family have moved into a new apartment at 35 West Elm Street, apartment 5B. The boys have painted their room blue while the girls insisted on pink and purple stripes.

Robert recently earned a promotion. In his new position as Headmaster he is looking forward to improving the school and helping all the children.

George's father-in-law has officially handed his dairy farmer business to George and his wife, Rachel. The two of them enjoy running it day to day.

Catherine got a job (part-time) at the local library. Ever since her husband quit his job and entered medical school, even a little bit extra income has helped them get by. He’s hoping to become a Doctor.

Charles, on the other hand, has just exited his pharmacy course at university. He’s now a full-fledged pharmacist with a wonderful wife, beautiful daughter, and a bright future.

Stella is still as exuberant as you remember, even at 15. I love her spunk, but some of the things she does are a little… heedless. She’s still in correspondence with that young tutor and I know he’s a positive influence on her. However, she has also begun a correspondence with his young pupil – a senior university student named Eric Samuel Green. Her father and I are a little worried that she’s infatuated with him. He’s far too impulsive to be a role model. But, then again, that’s probably why they get along so well.

…sic part of letter…

Love,

Ava

It’s just about time to ring in 1914, but you’re not really in the festive spirit for parties or even a small dinner with friends. You’ve travelled the globe, eaten so many strange-looking foods, slept in tents and huts and out under the stars. None of that stopped you from doing what you liked. And now that you’re back in the States? You, the mighty explorer, have been felled… by a common cold.

In a vain attempt at being productive you’ve decided to organize all of your Christmas cards and New Year’s greetings. However, your dedication to the task is waning and it doesn’t take much for you to get engrossed in a Christmas letter from your dear friend, Eliza Murray Miller:

Dear Felicity,

I hope this letter finds you well and resting at home though in this season of joy (and colds!) I expect you are in bed with a hot water bottle – just like you always used to be when we were girls! I must…

…And now I must tell you all about the family –

Anthony has finally agreed to retire! The whole family is so pleased. His health isn’t what it used to be and the doctor says it would be good for him to rest for a while. I’m looking forward to spending more time with him… though I’m not quite sure what he’s going to do with himself now that he has time on his hands!

And do you know what Leopold “Leo” did to celebrate the boys’ birth? He bought one of those noisy automobiles! Why, Beth is nearly as distrustful of those machines as I am!

Joyce “Joy” and her family have moved into a new apartment at 35 West Aspen Street, apartment 5B. The boys have painted their room navy blue while the girls insisted on lilac and mint green stripes.

Anthony “Tony” recently earned a promotion. In his new position as Superintendent of Schools he is looking forward to helping change how schools are run.

Timothy’s father-in-law has officially handed his store to Tim and his wife, Laura. The two of them enjoy running it day to day.

Caroline “Carrie” got a job (part-time) at the local library. Ever since her husband quit his job and entered medical school, even a little bit extra income has helped them get by. He’s hoping to become a well-established doctor.

William “Will”, on the other hand, has just exited his pharmacy course at university. He’s now a full-fledged pharmacist with a wonderful wife, beautiful daughter, and a bright future.

Lucia “Lucy” is still as exuberant as you remember, even at 15. I love her spunk, but some of the things she does are a little… heedless. She’s still in correspondence with that young tutor and I know he’s a positive influence on her. However, she has also begun a correspondence with his young pupil – a senior university student named Philip Louis Granger. Her father and I are a little worried that she’s infatuated with him. He’s far too impulsive to be a role model. But, then again, that’s probably why they get along so well.

December 13, 1913

It’s just about time to ring in 1914, but you’re not really in the festive spirit for parties or even a small dinner with friends. You’ve travelled the globe, eaten so many strange-looking foods, slept in tents and huts and out under the stars. None of that stopped you from doing what you liked. And now that you’re back in the States? You, the mighty explorer, have been felled… by a common cold.

In a vain attempt at being productive you’ve decided to organize all of your Christmas cards and New Year’s greetings. However, your dedication to the task is waning and it doesn’t take much for you to get engrossed in a Christmas letter from your dear friend, Georgia Howard:


Dear Evelyn,

I hope this letter finds you well and resting at home though in this season of joy (and colds!) I expect you are in bed with a hot water bottle – just like you always used to be when we were girls! I must…

…And now I must tell you all about the family –

Walter has finally agreed to retire! The whole family is so pleased. His health isn’t what it used to be and the doctor says it would be good for him to rest for a while. I’m looking forward to spending more time with him… though I’m not quite sure what he’s going to do with himself now that he has time on his hands!

Georgiana and her husband welcomed yet another set of twins to their brood this past September. I have no clue how she gets anything done with six under ten running about. And do you know what Orson did to celebrate the boys’ birth? He bought one of those noisy automobiles! Why, Georgiana is nearly as distrustful of those machines as I am!

Beulah and her family have moved into a new apartment at 35 West Elm Street, apartment 5B. The boys have painted their room blue while the girls insisted on purple and pink stripes.

Walter Jr. recently earned a promotion. In his new position as school superintendent he is looking forward to it.

Elliot's father-in-law has officially handed his grocery store to Elliot and his wife, Annalie. The two of them enjoy running it day to day.

Priscilla got a job (part-time) at the local library. Ever since her husband quit his job and entered medical school, even a little bit extra income has helped them get by. He’s hoping to become a surgeon.

Samuel, on the other hand, has just exited his pharmacy course at university. He’s now a full-fledged pharmacist with a wonderful wife, beautiful daughter, and a bright future.

Stella is still as exuberant as you remember, even at 15. I love her spunk, but some of the things she does are a little… heedless. She’s still in correspondence with that young tutor and I know he’s a positive influence on her. However, she has also begun a correspondence with his young pupil – a senior university student named John Matthew Griffin. Her father and I are a little worried that she’s infatuated with him. He’s far too impulsive to be a role model. But, then again, that’s probably why they get along so well.

…sic part of letter…

Love,
Georgia Howard

I'm looking forward to spending more time with him...though I'm not quite sure what he's going to do with himself now that he has time on his hands!

Elizabeth and her husband welcomed yet another set of twins to their brood this past September. I have no clue how she gets anything done with six under ten running about. And do you know what Rupert did to celebrate the boys' birth? He bought one of those noisy automobiles! Why, Elizabeth is nearly as distrustful of those machines as I am!

Shirley and her family have moved into a new apartment at 35 West Oak Street, apartment 5B. The boys have painted their room black, while the girls insisted on purple and yellow stripes.

Martin Jr. recently earned a promotion. In his new position as Superintendent, he is looking forward to cutting schools back an hour early.

Edmund's father-in-law has officially handed his Grocery store to Edmund and his wife, Nancy. The two of them enjoy running it day to day.

Alice got a job (part-time) at the local library. Ever since her husband quit his job and entered medical school, even a little bit extra income has helped them get by. He's hoping to do General Practitioning.

Nicholas, on the other hand, has just exited his pharmacy course at University. He's now a full-fledged pharmacist with a wonderful wife, a beautiful daughter, and a bright future.

Eve is still as exuberant as you remember, even at 15. I love her spunk, but some of the things she does are a little...heedless. She's still in correspondence with that young tutor and I know he's a positive influence on her. However, she has also begun a correspondence with his young pupil -- a senior University student named John Frederick Goodman. Her father and I are a little worried that she's infatuated with him. He's far too impulsive to be a role model. But, then again, that's probably why they get along so well.

...sic part of letter...


Love,
Eliza
