My Dear daisy,
I am very much pleased to receive your letter although I have three daughters, the fact that my hearing is defective makes me lonely at times and my friends that used to write me have many of them passed over the; so that every letter I receive is a blessing.
I am mailing to you a little book of short daily prayers; it is a book that I enjoy greatly and although I have used it steadily for several years I continue to find it interesting and a comfort. I trust that it may prove the same to you and I shall enjoy the thought that we a re daily receiving comfort from the same source.
I am glad to hear that you think of some time returning to Long Island; I hope that you will bear in mind that my house and my family will be delighted to come and stay with us and we will treat you as one of the family and the longer you can stay the better.
The girls have visitors but I seldom have any one come to see me; I except should you come that Bessie would wish to monopolize you but I feel sure you would give me a fair show
If you have a photo of yourself I would greatly appreciate it; if you have not one to spare lend it to me and although I might not wish to return it I will be good & do so.
Wishing you the best of things
Affectionately yours
(signed) Selah B. Strong
