December, 1897.

My dear Aunt Maggie,-
I expected to write to you long ago;
but somehow or other the time has passed, and my letter has
not been written.
We are all very well now with the exception of a few
colds. Lloyd had malaria in the form of chills and fever,
but he is better now. I have quite a cold and had to stay
home from school today. It is the first time I have been
absent in almost a year.
We have been having very warm weather here lately, not
at all like Christmas. Everyone is very busy now preparing
for the holidays.
Baby is growing up to be quite a big boy. he is writing
letters to Santa Claus and telling us what he wants for
Isabel and her baby were at Nova Scotia all summer. She
has grown to be quite a big girl also. She walks and talks a
little too.
I mailed a center-piece to you last week, which I hope
you received all right. It is not much but I worked it
myself and it is a little reminder of the Christmas season.
With best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New
Year, and with the best of love from Mamma, Papa, Grandma,
Lloyd, Baby, and
Your loving niece,
Marion Denham Wilson.
