TranscriptSan Martin

Dear Sister,
I take this opportunity of letting you know we are all in good health and trust yourself and brother enjoy the same blessing. We are all very sorry for John Boggan's leaving us for home, yet there is such a charm in the word home that few who enjoy the blessing rarely forget it. So we can't blame him for going although we all lose a friend. I have got the children's cartes de visite taken but the time has been so short that I don't know if they will be finished in time to go with Johnny, who was always Katie's particular friend. Katie is sending this little handkerchief to her aunt Margaret when she can't go herself. We were all sorry for poor Mrs. Furlong's death. It must have been a severe trial on her husband and children, give our love to him and family. Give our love to brother Martin and accept the same fond feeling from your affectionate sister,
Eliza Murphy
