[Stanly elowe] Lane
My Dear Billy,
[Here] I am landed at last dear but I cannot
settle here some how, I don't know why.
I am very sorry to tell you dear that the bedroom slippers
you sent me are miles to large I only take fives dear +
I'm most [terribly] sorry my feet are not a bit bigger
as they look so nice and comfortable.
Auntie Ada at [Patsmoore] likes the slippers very much
+ she would like to buy them + send you the money
for them if you will let her know how much they cost
You see it would be [useless] sending them back
as you would not be able to change them
now as it will be a long time in between. So the
best thing will be [for] you to let use know how much
they were + we can either send you the
cash or Auntie Ada can let me have it + I
can get some thing here but I would much
rather you had the cash sent to you + I [shall]
be able to think it came from Canada so you
must not forget to let us know dear.
I went to see Betty and Vera on Saturday night they were
giving a [consert] + the had a collection + I should think
there would be more than 12 at the most + they got
10/5 [towards] a wireless so they [didn't] do bad did they.
Betty's been ill in bed + she can hardly talk poor kid.
Betty + Vera seemed to pleased because you sent
them some thing at Christmas it was ever so
nice to see how their little faces beamed up, they were
telling me about it. Have you heard from
any of the [relations] [lately] I know Auntie Ada +
Uncle Bernard [wrote] to you.
I was thinking [seriously] of coming to Canada
until I went to see Betty + V. on Saturday night,
but really you know if I absented them poor little
darlings they would have no one see that [Auntie Ada's sister) didn't put on them because
she is a (pig). I suppose I shall have to put
coming to Canada off for a year or two
Just fancy its your birthday today so I
will wish you a many happy [returns] of the day.
I'm most awfully sorry dear but we've got to go
to bed now the cook is [not] much of a [sport] we've got
to be in bed by ten o'clock + up at 6:15 in the morning.
We'll I think this is all for the present dear.
