Mild und leise wie er lächelt...
An apparition seemingly out of season, unlooked for but not unwelcome.

My dearest Klaus and Claudia —
I pray that this letter finds you both well, and that you are being good and dutiful children for your mother and father.
Your father has written to me of your recent voyage to the Eastern Country, and said you enjoyed the visit greatly. I am sorry that I cannot visit you at Christmas-time this year, but in my place I am sending you a volume of fairy-stories from the East, translated and retold in our own tongue for the delight and edification of children of the West like yourselves. I hope that both of you will cherish it for many years to come as a memento of your happy days abroad.
With all of my love,
