Killynure [1]
Feb. 24th 1921.


My dear Mary [2]

            I had the enclosed letters from Peggie [3] this morning regarding the Dongooley [4] & Tullyvallen [5] property & I, like the others think Mr Oconnor [6] the most suitable person to manage it & I feel he will do us all justice

            I trust you are all well & enjoying the fine weather. We are all well here, no letter from Bessie [7] yet I expect it is on the way.

            With love from us all

                        Your fond sister

                                    Bessie Brown [8]
