My dear John
Your letter of the 18th March reached us
on the 21 April and was gladly received. We were all
rejoiced to hear that your health has been so good since
you left this, and we hope and pray it may continue so.
I am happy to say that we are all well. William Henry
is gone to school again, but there is now no female school
here as Miss Fetherson has left and gone to Belfast. Jane
Ellen & Margaret have been in Belfast at Mr Wm. [William?]
McCleery's since a day or two before the arrival of your letter.
They are not home yet. In a letter your Mamma had on the
1st Inst., Jane Ellen mentions that they are to go to
Dunadry [*] to day on the railway which is now open.
