Almond", 1p, 6¼x9. No place, no date. In full: "The year draws to
a close and the historical and religious heritage of a free people calls for
our attention. First our American Thanksgiving - a time to light many
tapers of thankfulness for blessings. Our cup truly runneth over - because of
this and for all that you, our friends mean to us, praise and gratitude fill our
hearts. May you, too, be able to count many blessings. Second, the Blessed
Christmas season - a time to share; a time to worship; a time to look up to
the stars on a cold winter's night and from their quiet beauty gather peace for
the soul. Then, The Night when the angels' song brings the message of
love, hope, peace, and good will to men. Our loving thoughts will be with
you and yours, though no card will proclaim it. As the old year wanes and the
New Year dawns may the light of Christmas continue to cast its rays that you
and yours will 'know no fear while love, faith and God's own peace fills every
day'. God bless you". JAMES LINDSAY ALMOND, JR. (1898-1986), a
