My dear Mother
I was sorry to hear of Tommy's affairs, not so much on his
account, as yours. The fact is, having to work, as you do, nearly all
my waking hours, I have little sympathy with those that let things
dawdle along. The dishonesty of these young promoted sons of the
sod considering the Catholic atmosphere they move in, is deplorable.
However you, who should have none, have had enough of trouble.
I think if I send £40 it may help. I posted your postscript in a letter
to Robert, and also wrote to Eugene. Joe Brannan's was a big smash, but it also was inexcusable. At all events speculations at the risk of others is not up to the highest standard of business conduct. It is hard on Mrs. Brannan, who I think is living, and the girls.
Abbie has been laid up, twice recently, but is nearly right. In
the first case, the train to Melbourne brought on, at an early stage, a
miss-c; this is (probably) the same. The children are all well. It is
difficult to purchase a good house here. I have been looking out for
one. I hope you are all well, and with Love remain

Your affectionate Son
P. McM. Glynn

P.S. I was glad to get the Newspapers with the University Reports etc.
