I Know you will be much surprised at not my writing home, but to
be Candid thare is no employment in Melbourne, that is the Cause which
detained me.—William O'Dwyer Came to the Cuzco and brought me to
his place, he has a splendid hotel. I Can never forget his Kindness to me
and his good wife, as nice and as affectionate a woman as I ever meet. He
has a good Situation at the draipery in one of the first houses in the City—
I Saw Anthony O'Lughlin he received me most affectionaly, he has a good
Situation and most steady.
I Came to Australia at an age not Suitable to the Climate, a strange
land and a strange people. I never Could live here, in fact it is impossible
to Get a Job here. I am writing this note at F. Hennessys—he is one of my
best friends. I Saw a Great number from Ennistimon and every one of them
treated me with the greatest affection. I long to be home again. Send me
the Clare Examiner and write me a long letter.
from your fond
to Mr Francis Comber
