though there would be much more

work to do. My men have all been

having a bath to-day + I guess it

will do them good especially so as

they got clean clothes at the same

time. Fancy betting on the date

I don't think I dare here. I hope

the Rev Father will prove reasonable

+ I should be very sorry if we had

to turn Mrs Ball out under the

circumstances. However you will

see what he says + then do what

you consider best. In any case

he cannot possibly turn us out

of the house before the middle of

May as he could not get an

order for about six weeks from

the day we refused to leave.

         Glad you got another letter +

hope you have received others by

now. I had a note from

Danny wishing me good luck 

Kenneth must be getting off

new words every day. What
