The Railway Commercial Hotel, Caherciveen, Co. Kerry, Ireland
My Beloved Angee,
I am in a place that might well be called Land's End – right down in the extreme SW of Ireland – my work brings me thus far and it was painted in very glowing colours as a charming place and a nice hotel – well the scenery down to it is the grandest I have ever seen in this part of the world but the place and the hotel and its environments I cannot say much for – however here I am until Monday morning for better or worse – Received your letter at Trallee last night with the tail portion of the precious one – sorry to hear you had been feeling a little poorly and hope you will soon recover.
The mail is just going out so you must wait a bit longer for my letter which I will write tomorrow D.V. All believe me my dearest Angee.
Being very affectionate Husband.
