My dear Minnie 
Your telegram & letters reached me safely; many thanks for your kind wishes 
I have not much news, but even if I had none, I would write to say how happy we shall be to see you, and as many of the children as you think fit to bring with you. I do not recollect whether I told you that Jemmie  and Lizzie  have taken up their abode in Legmoylin  ; so that we have three unoccupied bedrooms; and Sally has one; so now you can see the extent of our sleeping accommodations. The old Governor  and I are quite alone, just like a newly married couple. We are both well, for I need not complain of my ear; as it gives me no pain, it is not worth speaking about.
The Land Commission have given their decision about Cavananore  . Cousin Sam  is to get a reduction of ₤60 a year on his rent; but he is not satisfied with that; and has appealed to the superior Court; so the case must be tried over again.
With love to the children ever dear Minnie,
yours most affectionately,
 Amelia Lydia DARE – wife of Sir Thomas JACKSON
