Dear Mr. Hall
Mrs. Anderson desires me to thank you heartily for
your kind presents. She says that when you come to visit
this fair City in 1893 during our great Worlds Exposition
which is to take place here, she will spread that same
tablecloth & those napkins for good use, and will do her
best to make you enjoy you visit among us. We have heard
that your intentions are to visit America in 1892 or 3
[1893?]. Most certainly we will make you welcome & as far
as in our power strive to make your visit a most
enjoyable one. I feel sure if you are spared till then you
will not regret your trip & you will carry home thoughts &
opinions of the vastness as [and?] also the wonderful
resources of this great country.
We are having a warm Summer and it is very trying
on most people, but doubtless you will have heard all of
this from Mrs. Black. I am glad to say Mrs B. [Black?]
looks well & I think is bearing up under our Summer
wonderfully. We are not far from each other only about 30
rods. I am sure the children will soon grow attatched
[attached?] to their new Country and not think of
returning, such is life when young people come out here,
they soon loose [lose?] all regard for the Country of their
We are all in good health save one, our second
daughter - who seldom enjoys good health. This hot summer
has been very trying on her, but we hope she will pull
through. I suppose by this time your Hay harvest is on & you
will be busy in the meadows. We will hope you may have good
weather for the harvesting of all the crops. We fear you have
had a cold wet season so far in Ireland, as we had a letter
yesterday from a Sister-in-law saying it was cold raw weather.
Mrs. Anderson joins me in grateful regards to yourself
Mrs. Hall & family & that you both may be spared many years
[over?] those you [love?].
Your sincere friend
David Anderson
