My dear Mrs. Russell
Your very welcome letter has just arrived and I was very glad to
hear from you and to know that you are well. I am glad to say
that I cannot complain of my health. But I suppose you do not
know that Robert is dead and also my youngest son, Hugh, but
Matthew is living and well.
Mary Callen is living with us and is in as good health as can
be expected and desires to be remembered to you. We had quite
forgotten about the small matter you mention the potatoes but it
is quite time enough yet. You can send the Post Office Order,
the Raphoe Office or a Bank Order on any of the Banks in Ireland
and we will get it Cashed in Raphoe as we have got a Bank there
now. I am thankful to you for your kind wishes and I am happy to
say that I have also much to be thankfull [thankful?] for.
I Remain
Yours Sincerely
Mary Gailey
Mrs. Ann Russell
Dundalk P.O.
