Mother tells me you are

growing very quickly, that 

you are enjoying new

foods + also that you can

explore your world with

ease + rapidity. I wish

you joy in all these

new delights.

  Look after mother for me

+ love her a lot to make 

up for Daddy being away

so long. I meant to send

you a small present but

I could find nothing at

Fermoy + unfortunately I forgot

to buy a present when I was 

in Dublin. I dare say

Mummy will have done 

better + if she has not

got something for Daddy well we

must ask her to do so.

  So long Old Man, I am coming

to see you as soon as I can + I

hope that will be in a short time.

  Lots of love + kisses
