3My darling old sister
5I wish I was with you still. I would come this afternoon only I fancy
6Ursie will have taken you to her house. You have had blow after blow
7in the last two years - but oh darling she is at rest & will never
8know that pained cruel suffering anymore.
10I want to go to her funeral if I can. Please let Ursie telephone me
11where it is to be & at what hour.
