Hepworth sends her friend her fondest love and good wishes for Christmas and the New Year and continues to reflect on the past year, '….1967 has been cruel.

I am hoping I will be able to walk by next Feb!', further asking for news of Forma ('tho' I don't deserve it') and concluding 'My big Ex[hibition] at the Tate opens next April. What fun if you could get over here. The doctors will not permit me to come to U.S.A.'.
