Dear Betty and Charles:
I am so very glad that the proud stork delivered your male so safe and sound
Precious things come in small parcels, he must be very precious to weigh a wee six pound.
I hope the proud Mom and Pop will cherish him and care for him with the greatest skill
For you know his is my first great-grandson by the name of Hill.
Note: this poem is dated March 20, 1950. Charles Victor Hill (1924-52) was her grandson (the first with the surname Hill) - he and his wife Betty had their first child James on March 21, 1950. Perhaps Grandma had her days mixed up?
