It also had a inscription, and I am typing it in full here because, well, you'll understand after you read it. I've left out the name, although I supposed it doesn't matter at this late date.
Merry Christmas, M--- 1975
I hope you will like your Corn Husk Doll for your Xmas tree. I'm sure this book won't mean much to you now--but perhaps in future years you will read gthis and remember your Granny gave it to you when everyone was talking about the Bicentennial Celebration of our country--You are only 3 years old--but you have brought so much joy and happiness to me, and I love you so much--I'f I could I'd tie the whole world with a beautiful red ribbon & give it to you to hang on your Xmas tree.
Loads of Love,
It was worth the quarter just to read the inscription.
