My dearest Elizabeth 

These days of
sorrowful memories
to the time lost made
me think les of you,
indeed, it seems as
if they made such
(indecipherable] to
your dreams and hopes!
I know you have not
forgotten and where
help is to be found.
I do hope you are
feeling better, my
poor dear ! [indecipherable]
that He who has so
deeply tried you
has sent you help, &
mercy in believing
that His will must be right 

I forgot to tell
you that
L Parker
has [indecipherable]
the £60
kind of him
day to old
likes to talk
of old days
good news of
[indecipherable] Australians?
