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