My Dear Frank
I was glad to receive your letter of the 25th November. I have
not recently heard from your Father. It is well, however, that you are
in the district and engaged at some local concern or pastoral work.
You doubtless have written to your Father also. If he writes definitely
that he desires you to take up some land, that is a comparatively small
area which you will be able to work yourself, he will doubtless send
on some funds for the purpose. I was in Melbourne about a fortnight
ago, but you were doubtless away at the time.
At the moment I have had a letter from Dymphna. She has had
a fine time in England, has been right through England, stayed some
time on the West Coast with Joan, and in her reference to such places
as York, in particular the Yorkminster Cathedral, gives exactly the
impression I had when I was blessed to be there in 1916. They are
doubtless in France by this time and possibly Agnes with them and
wall probably go on to Spain. She writes of the generosity of the
higher class people in Dublin. Mr. Cosgrave with whom Joan had
conversation seems to be a very gentlemanly man. Hoping you are
in the best of health. I am,

Your affectionate uncle
[P. McM. Glynn]
