Description January 2, 1898 - Rotterdam, Holland, to (Salt Lake City); Thatcher, Brigham Guy and Flody (Florence Beatie), to Dear George and Nell (Thatcher Blair). They are in Holland on a mission for the LDS church. Thank Nell and George for their gifts, as this is their first missionary Christmas away from home. Discuss the difference in the Christmas celebration in Holland--celebrated on December 5 and 6, the birthday of St. Nicholas an ancient Catholic priest--different customs--such as a great amount of hand shaking--uniforms worn by maids, and the sights of the city. December 29, 1898 - Rotterdam, Holland, to (Salt Lake City); Thatcher, Guy and Flody, to George and Nell (Thatcher Blair). An answer to a letter and thank you for Christmas remembrances. Philosophizes by saying that no one makes progress when they are in a rut, for all the energy is spent trying to get out or in fear of falling, etc. September 8, 1899 - Salt Lake City to (Rotterdam, Holland); (Blair), Nell, to Dear Guy (Thatcher). Family letter congratulating him in his birthday and on their great missionary effort. October 31, 1909 - Rotterdam, Holland, to (Salt Lake City); (Thatcher), Guy, to Dear Ilka (Nellie Thatcher Blair). After ten years, they are once again in the mission field.
