My Dear Annie,

  I only received your letter of

April 23rd so you see it was delayed a long time. My

poor darlings death must have been a terrible shock to

you Annie. I shall never forget it. she wrote me a very

cheery letter just about a week before and told me Baby

had red hair. I'm awful anxious to see it. it's a great

responsibility and I shall never marry again you say you

are going home to remain Annie dear. I'm going to apply for

a postman's place in Kingscourt and think I shall get

it when I return so Annie what do you think of coming to

live in Cortubber it would make me very happy and we

could devote ourselves to the Baby. I don't know Annie how

you will look at this, and I cannot put all I would wish

in this but I think Annie you will understand, and I hope

Annie you will consent and you would be secure in case

anything happened to me. I had a letter from Geely Maude Esq

the Estate Agent offering to look after the place for me

and I accepted it. My only consolation in this terrible time is

that she is surely in heaven and that I may meet her again.

Annie dear by whose wish or order was she buried in K.wood

they should have buried her in Inniskeen. I hope dear Annie

you will see your way to what I suggest. I should like to 

see you there when I return. I'll close now dear Annie with

love and sympathy your sincere friend     Willie O'Reilly
