Letter: Sender unknown

From Mrs D. E. Wood

Sir: I have just been helping my mother go through her Christmas cards. She is 90, has poor sight and an uncertain memory.

"Nancy? Nancy who? Elizabeth? I know so many Elizabeths."

May I appeal to your readers that next year, when sending cards to elderly people, they sign their names clearly and, ideally, include the surname. The cards give such pleasure, but it is somewhat diminished if the sender cannot be identified.

Yours faithfully,

D. E. Wood

Leigh, Kent
