The CottageDear Cousin Catharine
St Paul's Cray
Feb 1st 1932
Thank you for your kind letter of sympathy on the passing on of my dear father. For him we cannot mourn, for it is well with him. His end was beautiful and happy, and his memory will ever be an inspiration to me.
Did you get my brother's letter with the snaps. He has been looking for an answer from you & thinks perhaps his letter miscarried.
I hope you and yours are keeping well. There has been a lot of influenza with bronchitis here; but the sharp frosty weather we are having must now is breaking up the epidemic.
I am enclosing a paragraph about the Borieselter. John D. Rees of Youngstown is where you were interested. He seemed to have raked in the shekels!
Hoping to hear from you soon when you write to my brother.
Your affectionate cousin
