STAN LAUREL LETTERHEAD - 1111 Franklin Ave., Santa Monica, CA - HANDWRITTEN
Trixie [Wyatt] Dear-
Sorry so long in reply to yours, we recd. the package OK but haven't opened it yet - Eda joins in loving thanks & appreciate your sweet thought but still wish you haven't gone to all the trouble. I haven't been feeling too good this last week or so, so Eda had to do the shopping herself - she got a doll & lipstick for you & is on its way now. I didn't see the Doll but understand its an early American style - hope you will like it & is what you wanted.
Encl. are the photos you requested for the girls in "Binns".
All here is as usual so not much to tell you - Happy Xmas - lots of good health & happiness in '56.
Love from us both.

We were preparing to make some new pictures at our old studio when this thing happened, so the deal had to be postponed till I am in shape again. The doctor figures I will be okay by April and will be fully able to continue.
