A Young man called Seamus wanted to buy a Christmas present for his new girlfriend. As they hadn’t been seeing other for very long, he decided
after careful consideration, that a pair of gloves would strike the
right note, not too romantic and not too personal.
He went with his girlfriends sister to McElhinney’s and bought a dainty
pair of white fur lined gloves, the sister bought a pair of Knickers for
herself at the same time. During the wrapping the shop assistant mixed

chosen the long ones with buttons, but she wears shorter ones which are
easier to remove, These are a very delicate shade, but the lady i bought
them from showed me the pair she had been wearing for the past three
weeks and they were hardly soiled at all, I had her try yours on for me
and she looked really smart in them even though they were a little bit
tight on her.
She also said that the pair rubs her ring which helps keep it clean and
shiny, in fact she she has’nt needed to wash it since she began wearing

many other hands will touch them before i have a chance to see you
again. When you take them off remember to blow into them a little bit

how many times my lips will kiss them during the coming year. I hope you
will wear them for me on Friday night.
All my love
P.S. The latest style is to wear them folded down with a little bit of
