My dear Mrs Griffin  ,
I have your letter regarding the Dungooley  & Tullyvallen  annuities and I am sending the papers, ? enclose, to Slieveroe  I quite agree with you that the matter be left in the hands of O'Connor. His charges may play havoc but the annuities will be kept alive, and that seems to be the main thing under the circumstances.
Peggy now thinks that as soon as she feels able to travel she will come over here for a spell, before settling down in York, and I hope she will be able to do so. I imagine Archie  has some difficulty getting a house in York.they are probably scarce there like everywhere else.
All are well at the Castle  . I saw them on Friday.
With love to yourself & Molly
