Dear Billy

I shall have to apologize for

not sending you our Vera's letter and photo

before. I have had [her] for her month

holiday and I think she has had a good

time I thought you would like a photo

of her. I hadn't one of her, so I took her

to have it taken, and it is a very good one

of her. [It is just like life]. I ought to

have sent it before. I hope you will write

to her and tell her you have received it, she

asked me how long you would be in

getting it. I am sure you will like her

letter I think it is a very nice letter

Uncle and Edwin wish to be remembered to you

and hope you like being in Canada and hope you

are happy, did you know that Edwin was

married at Easter? We often have our Florence

to [see] us my word she does get a big fine

young lady and so does our Betty she went for a

and the went back to the Orphanage

but she has had a splendid time and she

did look well and as brown as a [bear]

Our Vera said that you might come home

at Christmas if not you would send them

say some funny things some times and she talks

there in a tick, we have missed her since

shall hear from you soon. Write as soon as

you are getting on and if you like it.
