Dear Father and Mother,
I arrived here all right yesterday evening, and Dan and Edward Rooney met me
at the Castle Garden. I was a little ill on Easter Saturday and Sunday. We had a very long passage. We had a head wind the whole way from when we left Queenstown
till we arrived in New York. I will write Mary to see what time I would need to leave to go over.
I left my box in Castle Garden. Mrs. Rooney is very kindly. There is a friend
of hers died on Saturday. So Dear Father and Mother, you need not be the least
uneasy about me. How did Mick get home? I will write you as soon as I arrive with
Mary. So Dear Father and Mother, I will not say much more. Hoping you all spent
a happy Easter Sunday. So do not be uneasy about me.
Kind love to Brothers and Sisters,
Your affectionate Son,
