Mr. M. McKenna

Dear Sir
thank you for answering
my letter so soon. I
little thought when I
wrote to you that
my Dear Father would
be dead. I never suposed [supposed?]
it to come so soon.
I got a little money
exchanged and sent it
to him at the same
time I sent it to you
Oh I cannot relize [realize?] he
has[?] gone. I am hart [heart?]
broken about him for he was
the grand Father to us
all you know how hard
he worked for us and
it all ways troubled him
that account of your's.
I remember some 8 or
9 years a [----?] when his
means was very small
that he said when
he came home
from church he spoak [spoke?]
to you about it and
you said that you
were not in any hurrie [hurry?]
with it and he was so
pleased that I know
he would have paid it
before now if he had
any ample means
to do it and I rote [wrote?]
to him that I would
see you paid since
I came here last so
I will pay the remainder
as soon as I can
as I will ask you
not to worrie [worry?] about it
for I have some more
things to pay and I will
do it as soon after that
is paid and I thank you
from my hart [heart?] for the
kindeness [kindness?] you
showed us all about that affair
it was my sorrowful
news for the Feddus[?] Johns
Death they cannot miss him
any more than I miss
my Dear Father please rem.
[remember?] me kindly to your
family and that god may spare
you both over them [?]
for no one
that the loss
[--?] to take [----?]
[-----?] if you
want to rite [write?] to
me anytime after
October the
first adress [address?]
c/o Mrs J Dehan[?]
310 Fifthe [Fifth?]
New York
Yours very truly
Ellen Treanor [Traynor?]
