My Dear Father
Once again I take my pen in hand to
inform you of our continued welfare at home.
Everything is moving along as well as could be
wished. The weather has been very fine during the
past week and crops are presenting a very fine
appearance. Mr Wm [William?] Stewart got back from the West on
Saturday last. John McLean is improving nicely and
is now able to walk around a little. Uncle John's
folks are all well and getting along first-rate:
The little ones are all contented and
happy as the day is long; and nothing accures to
mar the pleasures of the scene.
We have not yet received a letter from the 'old sod'
but hope to have one on Tuesday or Wednesday next;
Where are hope to hear of a pleasant voyage across;
a great improvement in Uncle John's health; and
that you are all having a very pleasant time.
This is my third letter to you since you left
besides several News-papers, did you receive them
all? I suppose there will not be much change in
Ireland since you were there two years ago?
Are there any of the Irish folk going to come out
to Canada when you are coming home?
Are you going to Dublin this time or have you seen
Uncle John or John Andy? Hoping you are all well as
we are at present I remain
Yours as ever
W J Jennings
P.S. Give my best regards to all the friends.
