The Gift


A young man wishing to purchase a birthday gift for his sweetheart decided upon a pair of gloves. Accompanied by his sister, he went to make the purchase, while his sister bought a pair of bloomers.

In delivering, the packages got mixed up, the sister getting the gloves and he the bloomers. He sent the package without opening it to his sweetheart with this following note:

This little token is to remind you that I'm keeping tab of your birthday. I chose these because I think you need them. I have noticed that you aren't in the habit of wearing them when we go out in the evening. If it had not been for my sister, I would have chosen longer ones. They are very delicate in color but the lady I bought them from showed me a pair she had been wearing for three weeks and they hardly looked soiled. I had her slip them on and they looked very sweet. How I wish I could put them on you for the first time but no doubt other gentlemen's hands will come in contact with them before I have a chance to see them. I didn't know your exact size, yet I should be capable of judging that better than any other person. When you take them off, blow into them before putting them away. Naturally they will be a little damp from wearing. Be sure to keep them on while cleaning or they may shrink. I hope you will accept them in the spirit in which they are being given and will wear them on Friday night.
Yours only,

P.S. Notice the number of times I shall kiss the back of them during the coming year. The clerk said the latest style is to wear them unbuttoned and hanging down.
