1860A Queen St. East
My dear Molly  .
I thought I would send you a few lines before you left. I suppose you are busy preparing for your journey. I hope it will do you good & I am sure you will be delighted to see Mickie  & his wife  & baby  if you get any snaps of them send me some. I am enclosing some of Fred's  little girl – Mary  & Sydney's  children – one of Jack  & his wife – thought you might like to see them. Mrs Johnston  leaves for Montreal tomorrow. she will be sailing for home the next day. She has got old looking but is a very fine looking woman she puts on quite a bit of side I just want to know Molly. if your Uncle Tom  ever wrote to them asking them to come back to Creggan  . I hardly think he would do such a thing. I know Annie was always given to embroider a little. The Hooey  girls, Annie & Madeline have resigned their positions with the Firm they worked for. They bought a Summer home at Pleasant Point & have been there all Summer. I just came back on Friday after spending two weeks with them – it is a lovely place & I enjoyed the rest & quiet. Will you send me some little thing in jade from China. a little pendant or a few beads if they are not too expensive I would gladly pay for anything you would send Wishing you bon voyage and good luck.
Your loving friend

 “Mollie” Mary Wright née Menary
 James Francis “Mickie” Wright (1902-?),
 Doris Mary Marguarite Brandt (1904-?)
 Michael Wright b. March 25, 1928 in Hong Kong
 Frederick Gilmore GRIFFIN He was born March 5th, 1889 in Newry, Co. Armagh and died 1945 in Toronto, Canada at age 56 He was the author of “Soviet Scene” & “Variety Show”. Jeannie MOORHEAD's memorabilia box contained a full page news clipping relating to his death, another relating to his daughter Mary as well as a copy of a letter from the Prime Minister of condolences to his wife.
 Mary Griffin, daughter of Frederick Gilmore Griffin
 Sydney H. Griffin, son of John Gilmore Griffin & Eleanor S. Griffin
 Jack is John Pelan Griffin, son of John Gilmore Griffin & Eleanor S. Griffin
 Mrs. Johnston – likely Annie Johnston, née Mary Anne Wright b. 1866, daughter of Robert Wright & Sarah Jane Reed.
 Possibly Sir Thomas Jackson
 Creggan – possibly Urker or Liscalgot
 Although Eleanor S. GRIFFIN the widow of John Gilmore GRIFFIN who emigrated to Canada in 1912 with her 6 sons may have been called “Nellie”, I suspect this “Nellie” is a wife of one of her sons (most likely Sydney). I am still piecing this together. The “Ga-Ga in the photos could be Eleanor S. Griffin.
