Dear Masha and Family,
We wish you all the most wonderful Christmas and the happiest and most prosperous New Year. We sincerely apologize for not saying before in writing--you made our time in St. Petersburg an incredibly wonderful experience. We thank you very, very much for giving us such a fabulous tour of St. Petersburg, for introducing us to your family and for sharing a meal with us. We particularly enjoyed having your daughter with us for part of our visit (she and her fiancé are both very charming and attractive), being able to meet your husband and sharing a meal with your family. You made our time in St. Petersburg the high point of our trip and one of our fondest travel memories. With deepest thanks and warmest wishes for a wonderful Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to you all! Fondly,

your friends in Seattle
John and Suzanne Price
