A. H. SELLERS3420 MICHIGAN AVE.(2)CHICAGOWe met at our Club house, this fall, Dr. Meacher of Portage Wis, and had a pleasant talk with him about you and your father's family. One of your sisters was a near neighbor of the doctor in Portage, and he now owns a farm near your father's old place. The doctor is becoming quite famous, more so than his father was, and that is saying a great deal. Wife and I spent 2 months this fall in our little cottage at the club on Puckawa lake, and enjoyed it very much indeed. We often spoke of you, and wished that you could be there with us, and planned many pleasant excursions that we could take with you. We talked several times of taking our steamer, and running up the Fox to a point near your old homestead, and going over to visit it, but something always came up to prevent. Someday we are going to make that excursion, as I am told that the old farm is only a few miles from the river, and we hope you and the girls may be of the party.Mrs. Sellers had intended making a dozen carbons of your picture, and sending them with the negative (which she says she promised you) to you as a Christmas greeting, but illness of her mother, and herself prevented. She hopes to get them ready to send soon.She joins me in affectionate regards, and best wishes for the NewYear to you, and to your dear wife and girls.Sincerely your friend[illegible]02938
