Dear Annie

I was glad to
hear Johnnie is getting so much
better and stronger I hope he
will soon be able to be about
again even if he is not strong
enough to work for some time
it is a great blessing to see
him able to take his old place
around the fireside the laidies
[ladies?] seemed to think he was looking
very well only so thin but as
I said you know Johnnie never
was fat like Willie I suppose
you thought I was more
anxious about the appearance
of things than anything else
but I thought as long as [Francis?]
would have to wait for them I
might send him over to tell you
I thought you might be
expecting them when they were
there Mrs Wallace had great
talk about the wee girl it
was well she did not catch her
by the hair or she might have
brought the fringe with her
you never told me Eliza was
down with Willie she came and
took away another of the
Irvines of Ederney for nurse
for Mr Maurice the Bishop
and Mrs Stack are going away
to morrow and I must say
I am glad Miss Darcy is gone
and Mr Naylor is away on his
holidays so it will be quiet here
for at least a few days when
they are gone you never told me
what the Doctor charged you
I hope you are feeling well
yourself is Gran's knee
better let me know how the
law went when you write
I never heard a word from
home since the evening I
came back here I wrote to
Maggie yesterday I suppose
you have got your own turf
dry before this did you get
the potatoes done that day
Bob was down I believe
Mr Watersons party was a
success does he visit you
as often now as he used to
is Johnnies appetite
improving I saw by your
last letter wee Mary did
not trouble much to help
you never mind so nothing
must have annoyed her
we have very good new
potatoes and Mrs Stack went
out on Sunday and picked a
dish of strawberries for tea
herself so now I must draw
to a close as it is time for
after-noon tea love to all
I remain
as ever your affectionate
Sister Rose

I shall be expecting to
hear from you by
Saturday Morning
