as you say it would do you good to be here, well Lily I had

a good time at Mr. Hughes Sunday tell father & mother he said

if ever they come to Blackpool he would only be to pleased

to put them up, Well Lily the weather is keeping fine so far

but the wind is cold but I would rather be here than Preston

I hope you all like the photos, I sent one to all of you, tell

Ada to keep one herself & to give one to each of her own people
