My dear Frank,

Just a few lines to ask why you are not writing  I was expecting a letter for the last couple of months but have not got any since last Spring.  We are all just as usual here George is working in Cork City since the 1st September last he has a good job he's getting on an average 3 pounds a week.  he was at home at Xmas for ten days he stays with Tom Dillane up there he'd feel more at home there than among strangers for a while anyway he pay's 1 pound a week for his board.  How is all your family I hope well the kiddies must be growing up a bit now.  write as soon as you get this and tell us all what about will you have to join the army over there or do ye hear from your wife's brother is he still out in France.  I would have written sooner but was waiting from day to day thinking I would hear from you.  Iwill close for this time hoping you will write by return post.
Your loving
Sister Mai
