My dear Mr. Andersen
I am very much obliged to you for your stories. i like key and Gerda the best of all and next to that the story of little Ida. My Mmma read to me that you cut out those pretty little paper figures you tell about I should be very much obliged to you if you would send me one of them or your autograph. I should prize it as much as anything I have. I have to little sisters and we all send our love to you dear Mr. Andersen for we all love your stories so much.
Your little friend
