Dearest General

A happy Xmas to you and [2 words illegible] of them. We are bringing you a present of some sleigh bells for the museum I think they are cowbells but you shall decide. We arrive on the 27th & hope Willy will leave some hunting. Kattie [?] was so grateful for the loan of yr. lamps The dance was a great success and she has a children's dance on the 25th With best love from Willy and yr very aff Blossie Fox Pitt.

This appears to be written by Lily Ethel Fox-Pitt, wife of Pitt-Rivers' son William Augustus Fox-Pitt. The sleigh bells are not listed in the catalogue of the second collection.
