My dearest Sally 
Eric Gilmore  asks me to forward inclosed Post Office order and to tell you that he hopes the sum will never be so low again but law expenses and income tax swallowed up a lot.
I was very uneasy till I heard from Clair  last week as he had written to neither Glenbanna  nor to me since I saw him However I had a long cheerful letter and so far he is all right. Mary Reid  had a letter which she showed me from George Mitchell  which pleased her greatly. He had hopes of getting over to see her I do hope he may manage it. Likely I would see him also. I spent a week at Gilford Castle with Jim and Molly  and a day at Glenbanna* Mary looks better than she did a year ago. The Castle is a lovely place and I felt lost in the big rooms and long and numerous passages. I am to go again when Mickie  gets holidays. He is at Rugby. I hope you are getting strong and well again after your long trial and loss. Of course you must still be very anxious about the boys. We hope the war is beginning to look more like a conclusion. All our friends are still alive. Philip Griffin  was hurt by a kick of a horse but is well again All Maggie's  children are well also Bessies  & Sallys  Bessie is not strong but is not ill just now. Dr. Tom Gilmore  is still at Salonika and had [his] [????]
My fond love to Mary  and your dear self
