My dearest Frank,
I received your letter last night and was very glad to hear from you.
We are all very well at home hope you are enjoying health. I got 6 or 7 letters from Mrs Morris since I heard from you last, she also sent me the Photo of her house and a ladies journal which was very nice she also sent me some post cards. I got a letter the day before I received yours from her. Annie the apprentice and I are stopping in the house by ourselves tonight because father and George are gone down to Limerick to a coursing match which is to be held tomorrow, they won't be home until tomorrow night about 9 oclock. I won't close this letter till I give you an account of it. We had a very busy time of it about the races and big fair. Mysia Buckley got married to Mikey Keane the schoolmaster I don't know if you remember him. he used to wear glasses. I will be sending you something for Christmas very soon so be on the look out for it. I hope you will send me something nice I like jewelery very much you sent Annie some very nice jewelery in the past years I would like a bracelet or a closed locket that I could put a small little photo inside it or I would love a watch I am always wishing for a watch and don't ever get one everyone in the house has one except myself.
There is not anything new in this place since I wrote to you last its the same old hole of a place since you left it.
I will send you a few of the Listowel views for Xmas. I will send you a few papers soon also There will be a case of Gambling against the Buckley's in court next Saturday also a case of being caught on Sunday with town fellows inside drinking. I don't think I have anymore to say so I will close Hoping to hear from you very soon again.
Your loving sister
