Miss Weir
I now answer your very
welcome letter. I am always
so glad to hear from you all
I have been miserible [miserable?] during
that wet cold snap with
neuralgia, But am better
now, Lizzie is just wild with
toothache I was just saying
to her when you came in to
have you or Miss Harrison go
with her and have them out.
How are you yourself I write to
Miss H. [Harrison?] now too, Well
James is well he is coming up tomorrow
I must cox [coax?] him up to get his
picture taken again, [No?] Johns they
are'nt [aren't?] going to have a christening
like Paddy's They never have
no christenings like they [the?] folks
used to have at home. I think
we'll have our's christened
that way for fun I wrote to
my friend to send the next
edition of [Bady?]. I wish it
was here, If I had wrote I might
had 2 or 3 (sic) by this time. You say
crops are poor in the old country
this year. Well round our part
the crops are an abundant
yield this year although it
has been a very wet year, So
dont despair. When we go we
will get all we want if it is
lots of good potatoes and
buttermilk wont we have
a gay time I wish Miss
Harrison was going with us
Yes that Parnell the rascal
Ireland will be well rid of
him, And Mrs O.Shea the
papers state that they think
she will not get over his death
I wont bother speaking about
her or him. Tell me about your
frind [friend?] which is more important
how his pulses is heating (sic). How
is your sister & husband getting along
How are the folks getting along
with their work now. I thought
they were particular enough
But sometimes you cant please
the people. Do you think Miss
Lovel or the others trying to run
away would make them more
particular examining. How is
Mrs Dubois & Miss Roberts & Mrs
Hibbard Lizzie says when are you
coming in. She says tell you's there
are going to be a grand Orange ball the 5th
of november [Genis's?] hall Woodward Ave
she has a bid to it. Theresa Smiths
is going theres where you would
have a good
time any person
can go its 1 dol per
ticket. Its going to
be grand I wish
you and Miss Harrison
could go Maggie
is crazy to go to dance
with O.Brien When
you's come in again
you's must see O.Brien
& Mr Cain & have a good
time I would like to see
Miss Gadam when she
was refused permison
[permission?] Weir &
Harrison would
get it then but you
could lay low & laugh in
your slieve [sleeve?] at her
I must stop write
soon love to all & to
yourself from Mary

good bye
