Dear Mrs Hayes

Thanks ever so much for your very kind letter which I was pleased to receive. I am glad to hear you are getting settled down to married life. I expect it takes some getting used to, don't you think so. Yes, you will miss all the lovely walks to Mold when it is pouring down with rain. I bet you will smile to yourselves.


Well I am going on alright up to now. I expect I shall be seeing you all in about a fortnight's time so will close for the present. Hoping you are keeping in the best of health.

Kind Regards from


Author: Birks, Samuel
