Dear Emma

It seems a long time since I have had a letter from any one of the family – but I expect you are all well as usual – We are having a very mild Winter no snow and not very cold but I expect our cold weather is all coming yet Anne E Muir is here from S. Dakota and Carrie and her husband and boy are in Michigan with friends

Carrie will make a long visit there as her husband is going to Washington [illegible] on business, he expects to receive more govern[ment?] contracts. I have had [more?] photographs of Dunbar but they are no more satisfactory than those we had before although they are somewhat larger We are all well here I am better than I ever expected to be again so I am very thankful to the giver of all good and great blessings

I now enclose a tri[illegible] as a Christmas present for the children, hoping you will all enjoy the happy blessed season I have sent a book to you by express hoping you will all like to read it Happy greetings to all - and much love
