Miss Annie Weir

Dear Friend
I received your wellcome [welcome?] letter
a few days ago and was glad
to hear from you also glad to
hear that you were well
and enjoying good helth [health?] as
I am doing the same myself
I am very sorry you did not attend
that wedding you said you
would tell me something
why did you not put it in
the letter. Annie you say when
you see me you will tell me
I am thinking you will be
far over the deep blue sea
before many months [past?]
you wanted to know when
I had a vacation it his [is?]
due in June but I dont
think I shall take one
we have to loose [lose?] them
two weeks pay and it cost me
so much to come and go
you was saying something
in your letter about
Miss Livingstone I now [know?] you
was only fooling that his [is?]
all O.K. I had a letter from
your Sister a short time ago
and if I have read that
letter over once I have read
it over 100 times I am very
sorry for here [her?] she his
[is?] not contented there but she
said she will have to make
the best of it now she also
said if she had here [her?] time
to live over again she would
not go to California but I
think I shall go if I go to
see the Country I think that
I can get money enought [enough?] to
come back if I dont like it there
but if I was to go there I should
give it a fair trial your Sister
says if she was me she never
would go there she never told
me if she got an Asylum
fellow or not I am sorry for here [her?]
sake and yours that she ever
went there out in that Country
all alone of course it his [is?] different
if I was to go boys can get along
where a Girl cannot.
well well Miss. Harrison
made a mark on Mr [Hulsor?]
what his [is?] the matter with
Agusty Gaddam
So you say Mr. Duffey [Duffy?]
his [is?] going to get married
Maggie Ashby I suppose
what was the matter with
Miss Gould made her leave
so sudden now think on
and answear [answer?] all those
questions when you write to me
the weather still keeps cool
hear [here?] yet no wonder of you
growling to me about it
being cold on the Halls (sic)
I now [know?] what it his [is?] now
So think that I will have
to quit as this letter will
make your eyes ack [ache?] reading
it So will say good by by (sic)
for this time From
Geo. [George?] R. Wood
Box A Asylum
