LETTER: [? 236] Victoria Parade, East Melbourne to Mother and Maggie. Everyone is well. She misses them all at home. Florrie [? her daughter] is full of mischief. She mentions Brother Tom and another man named Tom. Brother Tom is in a good situation and should do well if he can keep away from his one failure [drink]. She is thankful for a Christian upbringing and assures them that they are all very happy. Her little Florrie would find all Auntie Maggie's pins. Brother Tom said he would go to the place where the ships land and dangle his legs over the pier if he thought Bessie [? his wife] was coming. Life would be dull if he wasn't staying with them as he makes them laugh.
