Dear Cousin
I write to you these few lines to let
you know that we are all Well hoping this
will find you in the same I thank you very
much for your picture it is well taken I shall
send ours in the next letter.
Tilda & Maggie Duncan was [were?] up one Sunday and
she said that you wrote to Joe but he did not
answer it and she wondered what was the reason
that you did not send them their picture.
Bob & Rebecca is [are?] very big friends now but
I fell out with him because you could not be
bothered with him for no matter where you would
go he could hear it and then tell it to every
body [everybody?] Lizzie & me and some others went to
Barons court one Sunday and stopped in Tilda's and
they went & told down in the Plum [Plumbridge?] about
us and Bob [F.?] came at me in Newtownstewart Fair about
it that was the time me & him fell out as if
nobody was as good as him running down every body [everybody?]
Dear Cousin I am going to plumbridge for a week
or so and I will not speak to any of them I will
stay in your Fathers and I will have a good time
I am sure.
Mrs Elkin said that that (sic) the last
time that Lizzie was down that Lizzie should a
[have?] said that she was not out at Meeting for
half a year and Mrs Elkin went and told your
mother, thats the way they tell lies so wait till [until?]
Lizzie goes down again she will rise a row with
Mrs Elkin I believe I have no more to say at
only remains your fond cousin
Bella. M. Duncan

Give my love to the rest of my cousins. Write soon
