Dear Brother
I am going to
write you a few lines to let
you know how we are doing
We are all well here at present
hoping to find that you are
the same. The weather is very
nice here at present, if it keeps
dry for a few more days we will
be preparing to go to
the hill to gather the turf.
I am attending school every
day now. We had 31 at our
School to day so it was not
bad If their [there?] will
be as many at it every day
it will be very good
Uncle James has got another
Young Son on Monday 8th I think
he will soon have a housefull
(sic) of children after a while
Well I suppose when
I am writing I may tell
you about Miss Tillie McCullagh
being away to Omagh to learn to
be a sales girl. She went on
Saturday last and she has
to pay £10 a year for her boarding
So it will take some money
to keep her going if she stops
long in it I think that it is
in Anderson's that she is
I remain your Loving Sister
to J.A. Smyth Mary Smyth
