Tipperary: “I had no word from Jennie this long time.”

Dear Mother

Just a few lines hoping it will find all at home enjoying their usual good health. As this leaves myself the same at present. The weather has got very wet this last while, nothing but rain every day. But what can we expect at this time of the year. I hope Jimmy got home alright from the station on the day I came away. We had some time to wait from we got there. As the train did not go out as soon as I expected. But it was as well to be too early as too late. I got back here alright and feel nothing the worse for the journey. But I do not think I would take on the same thing again. Well I think if all is well and me here that long I will get a leave home at Christmas. And it will not be long in wearing round to that. I am going to write to Jack tonight was there any word from him since. I wonder will he get home. I hope he does. I had no word from Jennie this long time. I think she has forgot that I am here.

Was Jimmy telling you that we met Mr Fourie [?] on Monday night when we were going down to Bessbrook. He seemed quite pleased to see me. I as not know if he meant it or not. Nor do I care. I think I have no more to write about now so I must stop. Hoping to hear from you soon.

I remain
Your Loving Son
