Avenue Hotel, Belfast
My Beloved Angee,
Our letters seem to work in fast route style here – yours of yesterday is to hand and has been here since about 11 this morning but I had left for Lisburn and Lurgan where I have been today and have had great encouragement – have taken 7 splendid orders – one of them much better than any customer on my late ground could have given me, it filled three folios on my order book – now I pack up and it will be quite a little job as I have a lot of fresh samples to manage.
I have had a plenty of walking today but felt able to work and when the fish began to bite my legs felt 20 years younger and the bag of samples not so heavy. Got back to the hotel at 6 and had a nice tea. I will take care of myself for your sake and I hope you will do the same for my sake – well it must be a short note this time – much love to you and believe me my dearest Angee.
Being very affectionate Husband
