Dear Parents,
As I have the pleasure of writing you
these few lines I suppose you think that I am lost
but I am living yet and I am well and happy I am
teaching St Peter & Paul's school three months I
like it well here we have 76 children in school in
about a week we will have vacation.
I suppose you think it long untill investing I do
not know when it will be Ven. [Venerable?] Mother
did not write yet, but I think it will be in Agust
[August?] I will write again and let you know when
it will be. How are you all getting along are you
well and happy
and how is Johnney, Peter the baby and all the rest
does Peter Johnney and Rosa go to school as I just
thought of Peters birthday and Johnney names day
being today Peter must write me a little letter
I want to see how nice he can write now. I think
Rosa will make her First Holy Communion this summer
or has she made it yet? As this is all at present
never forget to pray for me as I pray for you every
day. I send my best regards to every one and I hope
to hear from you soon Placeing [placing?] you in the
sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary I remain
Your grateful child
Bridget Doran
