My Dear Mr McNeilly,

My sister and I are very much obliged to you for
your kind present. My Aunt Nancy drank tea with us on Friday
evening and afterwards went with us to the Natural History Society
of which I am a member. Mr Steen read the paper on the Steam
Engine. There was an exhibition, at the Gymnasium on Wednesday
evening and my Mother and Sister and I went. My Mother asked my
Aunt Nancy to go but she was engaged. We visited the Belfast Museum
in the Christmas vacation which we were much pleased with. I was
very much obliged to you for your letter dated 4th January which I got
by chance. I was sorry to hear that you were so poorly, but I hope I
shall soon hear that you are better. Please give my love to
Mrs McNeilly and Miss Waddell and to Mr James when you write, and
believe me.
My Dear Sir,
Yours with sincere affection.
