My dear Andy  ,
I am sorely grieved at Tanty’s  death. It was an unexpected blow and we were so long together and such good friends that I feel as if I had lost a son of my own. We never had a cross word between us in all the years he lived here. And was so easy to please and so bright and lively that when he left we missed him badly. It is hard to remember that none of his own were near him at his last hours. I hope Emily  and you are keeping up for the sake of those left behind. When you get the particulars of his illness please let me know – but it will be long till you do – a month at least. I hope Eilie  arrived safely. It was good at her to start at once, ill as [?] here. No letters from Stans  had yet but Tommy  expects to be over before going back to Dartry.
With love, your affectionate sister,
Mary Griffin  .
