Dear aunt sarah

Your letter and papers duly received and
I took the papers down to the office of the cemetery at 71
Bway [Broadway?] and left them there. I have not heard from
them yet but persume they are all right.
I thank you very much for your kindness and good will
in transferring the lot to me and hope it will always be
in the possession of some member of the Farrelly Family.
It is too bad you are affected by rheumatism but I
suppose we have to take whatever comes and be thankful
it is not worse than it is.
We have been very fortunate this winter as regards our
health none of us having any sickness other than a
slight cold occasionly [occasionally?].
Frank started to work two weeks ago in an
architect's office on 5 Ave. He seems to be getting along
very well and it ought to be a good thing for him as
he has an inclination towards that kind of work
My work keeps me quite busy as this is our best
season, March and April. but after that it will begin
to get lighter.
Carrie and I were [went?] to Madison Square Garden Monday
night to witness the Military Tournament. Gov. Roosevelt
was there and there was a grand review. There were foot
and bicycle races and maneuvers [monoeuvres?] by the infantry,
cavalry and artillery which were very interesting and well
Wednesday night we heard a concent by the Carlisle
Indian Band which is going to the Paris Exposition, and
it was very good . The Band is composed of Indian
young men from the government school at Carlisle Penn
Alice [Lenfertey's?] friend Mr Lupez was in to see me last
week for a few minutes. He was in New York visiting
his brother.
As I do not think of anything else of interest now.
will close. The family join me in love to yourself, uncle
Will and the Marrion folks.

Your loving nephew,
George Hayes Farrelly
