My dear Donald

I hope by this time that you are quite recovered from your illness and quite brisk again. I am happy to say that Catherine and myself is quite well but I look forward to a trip to the coast to be of great good to me and I would like very much to go when you are going again. If you go next month it would answer me very well. I hope poor Catherine is better in health than she was when I was down. I wonder she has not come up to make her preserves. You will have all the news from Alex who is down regarding the shearing and I have none to send you but would be very happy if you came up to stay for a few days. I am certain you

Always your attached brother
