New York, Dec 16 1902

My dear Alex
I took it that no news is good
news & that you have fully recovered from
your illness - I sincerely trust so -
Kate continues to improve but the trained
nurse & Doctor are still in attendance
& the former will be w(it?)h her until after
Christmas & we hardly expect her down
stairs then - infact we do not want her
to move fearing a relapse. We are having
a very severe winter - Cold weather - Snow
& gales & as you know the position of our
house you will appreciate it. We are however
getting plenty of coal & wood [despite?]
the scarcity owing to the strike. Hugh
was in yesterday, he & his family are well.
Jim is at work & well - his family is
scattered but I hear are also well - Will
was down this week but I missed him
he & Gerty are very well Blanche had
lunch with Gert yesterday, she said
Barron who has been ill with [lumbago?]
& congestion of the lungs. He is up on the
mend. My kids are all well & have
been enjoying the cold weather 7c 12
at our place. I am a fixture - had
one attack of quinsy in the spring - first
in sixteen years - it is my arch enemy
but I am an ar[tis?]t in handling it & got
through all right. This so far is only
a bulletin. I have to write a line to
Jim Corr yet & as I am on the run as
usual I must cut you short. I enclose
Dft [draft?] for ten pounds which [ready?] cash
for ten sovereigns - give them to mother
with my love & wish her all the joys the
season brings - The amount is small but
it is [anticipation?] (small [?] is) of prosperity
my company will pay a dividend on
Jany [January?] 1st the first in fourteen years (since
(1888) I will give you my history before
