My Dear Martin,
A few days ago I had a note from Bessie in which she told me that you are again laid up with your leg. I am sorry to know this, and I wish to let you know that I have lately heard of one man who lives near Onlard Onlard John has made extraordinary cures for scurvy. He is a very old man, a farmer named Finn, who lives on a place called. I cannot think of the name, not far from Onlard. He makes no charges and I am told he can tell after the first trial of the medicine whether a cure will be affected. I would recommend you to go to him and have his opinion. It can do no harm, and may perhaps effect a cure. How is Margaret. I hope she is well. I have heard of Mary Furlong's wedding and heard too Matt Evoy is about to be married also. I hope they have got good settlements and that they may turn out satisfactorily. Again I would advise you to go to this man and have his opinion. It is only a day's journey. You would drive early to Wexford and take a car there, as it would be too far to drive your own Horse and the post car does not leave Wexford until 3 o'clock, which would not send you. Perhaps this may be the man that will cure you after all. Hoping that this may be the ____ and with kind regards to Margaret I remain my Dear Martin yours affectionately, Alice Breen I cannot remember the name of the place where him lives, but it is about 1½ miles from Onlard, so you will be able to make it out if you think well of going see him.
