Killynure  ,
2nd February 1918
My dear Emily 
We were deeply grieved here this morning of the great sorrow which you and Andy  have got to bear in the death of your dear son  . It must’ve been a terrible shock to you both as I suppose you may not have heard of his illness. One can only ask God to help you to bear it. Mary  and I both feel for you. We both know Tanty better than we did the others, he was so much with mother  in Urker, for all liked him and mother was quite devoted to him. Mary joins me in love and sympathy with you all,
your affectionate sister,
Bessie Brown
