My dear Edith
It is really too bad of me not writing to you before this. I always seem to be

new house now. We were up there last week. It is a very nice place. Albert Gould was married yesterday. I had Mrs Flower (Miss Wheeler) to see me last week. I was so surprised to see her. I called her Miss Wheeler all the time

come round. You will have two big boys to look after. So you are making [illeg] a pinafore for his birthday. Thanks very much. Uncle Harry is building a fowl house for me & the next thing is to get the fowls. It will be nice to have our own eggs. You seem to have got nice presents from Father, that will be something else to put in your “bottom draw”. I am looking forward to seeing Auntie Emma soon. I suppose she is very much excited at going to Dunedin. Grand-ma will be lonely so you must go & see her often. The Goulds are up in there

Longburn boys. We were going to see Mrs Cornfoot tomorrow but we had to put it off. I have not much news to tell you as old “Feilding Hole[?]” is very quiet. Beatie Waddington has left her place. I think she would like to get back here. Now Edith old girl I must say good-bye. I will not be as long writing next time. Give my love to Mother & Miss Davis.
Hope you are all well.
Love to your own sweet self.
From your affect Auntie
P.S. Will write to Mother soon Annie
