such is our luck when we have our health

its dearer than all the wealth we could own

It is my earnest wish once more to spend

a fiew good old nights around the cross

that is if only I remain single whilst in

this country and its a hard thing to do

however we got to live in hopes.

Now Jemmie I think I will come to a close

for this time as its late and I need a 

fiew hours sleep once on a while so

I will say good bye and the best of

luck be yours always Dont be two hard

on the pubs I wished I had a good old

bottle of sandymans three star port now

this dam country is gone dry its all home

made liquor we sample. Remember me

to all at home when you write to them

in bothe houses. good night once more

with  fondest love from your ever dear

old pal since childhood

               Bill Mc Namard
