[n.d.]Dear Mrs. McDonald
I want you all to have something sweet to make you think of me once - and as Capt M - - admired these peaches when he should have been examining paint in the storeroom! - & as they are peculiarly mine, I have selected this jar in greatest haste hoping they may prove nice.
I hope Capt M - - will be satisfied now with his right of property in the picture I enclose.
With good-bye for all Affec
N.B.I am trying to decide if the box outside your <house> isn't almost as pretty as the inside!
