26 December 1984

Wes McNair
Box 43
North Sutton, NH

Dear Wes,

What a lovely thing! It hangs on the hangers behind the
stove in the livingroom, but eventually my excessive modesty
will cause me to remove it to a more private place…unless
my excessive modesty of course allows me to wear it in public.
I love it. So does Jane. And all our visitors have been looking
at it and loving it and laughing. Thank you so much! You are
a dear, and you please me no end. Thank you!

Love to you and Diane, as ever,


A note from McNair about this letter:  Don refers here to a gift I sent him, a sweatshirt bearing the words  “N.H. Laureate of Poultry”–the shirt in green and the words in white, which are New Hampshire’s official colors.
