The Cleers

So many thanks, dear friend, for your kind Birthday Greetings, to the children, as well as to me. I seem to have had no opportunity of writing before. Mt. Pleasant Bazaar closed last night, very satisfactorily. It has been a busy time, & before that D.M. had influenza, also Robert, Nurse & Stephen a touch of it. And I have been working in other ways at the top of my strength. I hope you are keeping stronger. Much love fr. M.E.M.
