…For special birthday gifts, too

Dear Tricia,

As usual — you had my order of cookbooks at the door the minute I put the order for them in my mailbox! GREAT! I'm planning to use them for Christmas — but all during the year they'll be for special birthday gifts too — and I 'll be needing more — I'm SURE — before December!

Your cookbooks are real treasures — and I was so interested in how you got started doing them! Also — you and I had such similar childhoods and tastes! All children should be born in the South — and have apple trees to climb — and good corn bread! Right??? (And TRAINS!!)

Thanks again!

With my love,
