Dear Mrs Lewis
I am dropping you a few lines as promised. &
apologised for not having written to you sooner. I
hope Grannie McGill, as Florence here calls her; is
well & all the rest at home. We are all doing fine here.
Florence is going to school every day; & Tom still
working away, We are having cold weather here; no matter
where you look, you see nothing only the ground white
with snow. I may tell you it is very cold here some
days in the winter. By the way what about your big son
Norman what part of Canada is he in, or has he gone home.
I have met with quite a lot of Scotch people & Irish people
here & they are all doing well. We like Canada well &
getting along fine. we are a year & a half here. We have
a nice comfortable home, & we have bought a motor car
now. & we can go where we like, we go away on Sundays for
a drive. Tom can drive her well. We are working with a
farmer we have a free house free fire wood free garden free
light & free milk as much as we could use, & Tom has
10 pounds a month. Well Mrs Lewis I must hurry with the
dinner, as Tom is nearly home for his dinner. excuse this
short scribble. Will write you longer letter the next time.
Now please tell Maggie to reply my letter as she will be
able to write me a long letter with lots of news, for
you know I still love to hear from dear old Ireland. Will
close with best respects to all at home, & also wishing
you all a very happy christmas & a merry new year
I remain
ever yours old friend
C. Faulkner.
