[in margin: Sellers]
My dear friend.
It has been such a long time since I have heard from you that I have been wondering if you are ill. Your kindly New Year's greeting has been the only message I have received since you were here last. It is my intention to sell the house as quickly as I can and if it is not sold by March, think I will store my furniture and go back to Chi
You are no doubt plodding away, doing some good work. but do not apply yourself too closely to it. If you can spare a little time, I hope you will write me and tell me how you are.
With Kindest regards
your sincere friend
Fay H. Sellers.
[Chi-]cago to make it my permanent home. It is so lonely here, that I feel I am doing myself an injustice by remaining longer. My sister-in-law has been with me several weeks. As she can not remain longer than March first I decided not to be left alone again. but sell the place and go where I would not be so constantly reminded of the last sad days of my husbands life.
