TranscriptMy dear Mary,
I received your letter, (my Mother I mean) by
Mr Malcom who dined here, and was very sorry to hear Mrs
Sharman had not been well. If Mrs S. [Sharman?] does not find it
convenient to bring you home on Monday, we will send for
you any day Mrs S. [Sharman?] fixes, but you can let us know by Mr
Malcom on Saturday. We can see no meaning in your
stopping at Mr J. Thompson's unless Mrs S. [Sharman?] does not wish
to come into town. If she wishes to call in Castle
Street, Dr. Thompson's would be a much more convenient
place, where we will meet you.
My Father was at Lambeg today, Mrs Bardsay was much
better. We rode out a long way on the car yesterday.
We found the day extremely cold. I believe I have very
little news. I suppose Andy and Sally will be here on
Saturday. I have not been in town since Sunday. James
was practising his tunes on the flute with Mr Malcom.
I suppose Mary dear, you will be displeased with me for
not writing a longer letter to you but as I will see you
so soon I will then tell you all the news I can think of.
I was very ill the other night with a very severe headache
and vomiting, just the same as I was at Hollywood [Holywood?], but am
now quite well. We expect the Miss Malcom's here next
week. I expect to hear from you on Saturday. This
family are all very well and join me in the most affectionate
love to Mrs S. [Sharman?] and you.

Believe me, dear Mary,

Your ever affectionate Sister,

Thursday night.
Margaret Craig.

Mary dear, do not forget the muslin Mrs Sharman was so
good to give me.

Miss Mary Craig
Moira Castle.
