My dear Daisey
I greatly appreciated the Ginger that you sent me and also does my family
I have been hoping to have some news from you but Archdeacon does not ever answer my letter and I can not at this season look him up.
We are all keeping fairly and have so far escaped the Flu; it is fairly prevalent about us.
I feel a little lonely at this season, as my brother Charles' birth day was on the 12th
I had always written to him on that occasion. He was too sick to wrote me or mine Oct 1st and going home Oct. 20th I can not write to him.
His death leaves me the only survivor of my Mother's eleven children; I have no one now to talk of my boyhood days and only five of my College Class-mates left.
There are some who wish me to try and get up a 65th reunion of the class of '64, I tell them when we were 15 I could get six back for our 60th; I hardly think I could get even two for our 65th.
We have had a mild winter with hardly any snow but a great many cloudy days which I do very much appreciate.
I take a short walk almost every day, and so keep fairly well.
Wishing you a very happy and prosperous New Year
Affectionately yours,
Over (signed) Selah B. Strong

I enclose a photo of my house and of the view from my Den window.
