      My Dearest Girl

      I'm sorry you have not had a line before, but it has been such a worrying time as you will understand. I was of course very disappointed about that house but I suppose there is some good reason although it is hard to think so at the time. Dad is just going now to Shephard's Well to look at a place, will let you [know] how it turns out.

      Dad and I was going yesterday afternoon but Dad did not feel equal to it and I'm sure he did not and it was a good thing we did not go for dear little Alfred was taken worse. He went off into a nice sleep but now is unconscious. We sent for the Doctor but he could not do anything; he says there is no hope for him so long as he is here because, as he says, [?] goes on and three nights running we had that wretched syren Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and he is worse each time. Tuesday and last night he never ceased to shout, even Mrs Holiday heard him.

      You will not forget to pray that our Darling may be spared will you.
      I have been thinking about you. I expect you are very busy, it seems such a time since we saw you. Poor Dad terribly worried and far from well but he must go back to Canterbury to day because his mate is knocked up. Now there seems nothing but trouble all round, but we must try and trust and hope for better times to come.

      Lizzie is disgusted at the idea of going to Sheppard's Well. Little Willie Youden is feeling the effects of it now. He was out in it all last Monday and he has screamed fearfully for several nights and Mr Youden told him if he screamed again last night he would shake him, think of it.

      Good bye old dear, cheer up, you must have been dreadfully disappointed but never mind you did your best.
