My dearest Sally  ,
Your welcome note gave us all great pleasure this morning, to learn that my dear Mary  had her confinement safely over and both she and her little daughter  were so well. Thank God for his great mercy it is a relief to my mind as I have been thinking so much about her lately. I trust baby will be a blessing and comfort to her father & mother.
I see by the paper that Dr. Nesbitt  has succeeded in getting the Dispensary. I suppose he would be more agreeable to Maggie  than a total stranger. Will she continue to live at Slieveroe I was glad to hear lately that poor Robert  had his wife insured for £2000. I hope it is true. I also heard that Maggie is in the family way  . Is that true? Alicia  wrote to you last night so you have all our news. Hannah  is thank God finely again. Annie  & Alicia are away to Armagh with their father today.
Mrs. Barkley  is now staying in New Hollow  with Mrs. Brown  . She came to see me lately Miss Lizzie  was with her. I asked her (Mrs. B) to spend part of this week with me, but she has so many invitations, she has no time. And I fear my time is wearing away for I feel very feeble, and I have a nasty cold hanging over me all week which will not go, but I am nursing it. God bless you.
Your affectionate friend

 Mary (née McCULLAGH) REID, wife of William REID
 Margaret Annas REID b October 14, 1881
 Dr. NESBITT?
 Margaret (Jackson) (Reed) McCULLAGH whose husband Robert Hamilton REED (1847-Sept 16, 1881) had died at age 34
 Dr.Robert Hamilton Reed, first husband of Margaret Jackson
 Thomas Jackson REED was born May 25, 1881, four months before his father’s death. If Margaret (née JACKSON) REED was pregnant again, it did not result in a live birth known to me.
 Alicia Eleanor McKEAN, daughter of William McKEAN and Mary Anne Jane BARTLEY
 Hanna Georgina McKEAN, daughter of William McKEAN and Mary Anne Jane BARTLEY
 Anne McKEAN, daughter of William McKEAN and Mary Anne Jane BARTLEY
 Sarah (née JACKSON) BARKLEY, wife of Rev. Joseph BARKLEY (1811-1881). She is an aunt of Sir Thomas JACKSON and of
 New Hollow, is not Brown’s Hollow, where Killynure family home was built by Thompson BROWN(E) as I had thought. I suspect it is New Holland, near Keady.
 I doubt that this is Bessie (née JACKSON) BROWN(E), wife of Thompson BROWN(E), sister of Sir Thomas JACKSON as I previously had thought. It is more likely Margaret JACKSON wife of Daniel Gunn BROWNE.
 Miss Lizzie? probably daughter of Daniel Gunn BROWNE.
 Mary Anne Jane (née BARTLEY) McKEAN (1815-1886), daughter of George BARTLEY and Alicia Eleanor NIXON
