Sheffield

P.S. I am sorry I cant

send you some stamps to

dear

Dear Billy,

I am just sending you

a few books to read dear. I

am sending you an [envelope]

and a sheet of note paper and I want

you to write back [by return and]

all what you would like

best for Christmas I am in

rather a [corner] and don't now

what I can send you so you

had better write back as soon

as you receive this letter I

have been wondering why

(Page 2 on back):

you have not written [before]

now dear and Vera does think

it's strange of you not to

answer her letter she wrote

to you over a year ago if

you now it will be

nearly a year since

you wrote to me now don't

forget to write back as soon

as you get this letter.

The reason I have put uncle

Bernard's address on the

letter is I am leaving [for]

Brown's Western Bank as

I have had a [row] with

(Page 3 on back)

the Mrs. and I gave my notice

in I do wish Fred would

come with me to Canada

to you as I am just about

fed up with service in

Sheffield. It will be three

years next Tuesday since

mother died. What do you

think Vera said when I

went to see her last Thurs

she said did I remember

the big [illegible] she had all

to her self some years

ago one that dad made

all for [her]. I think Vera's

(Page 4 on front):

nerves are In a bad state.

I do hope she will forget

all about it you know it

worries me in case you

should be regretting going

where you are dear. I sent

you some comics and a letter

some months ago I do hope

you got them. Every one

here think that some thing

as happened so do not

forget if it's only one line

It will be better than

not hearing at all from

you good bye

dear. Your loving

sister Florence

xxxxxxxx
