Letter No. 17

To GDC at Garroulds. Postmarked - Wickham Market - July 11th 1870


My dear George
Father received your letter on Friday morning. I also received the stamps and thank you very much for them. Mr. Kyle preached a missionary sermon in Laxfield Church last evening which was a very nice one. I am going to school next Monday week, you must write to me when I get there. Cousin Anna Maria is coming to teach the other children and help Mama with the sewing etc. Uncle Roe is gone and left Aunt without money, without food and without clothes. Uncle Charles and Harry say he is got no further than Liverpool, turning over 2 hundred coombs of wheat, he will never reach America. Aunt have been very ill so that Rosa was forced to go home from Aunt's. Mama, Nunn, Emma and myself went to Aunt's last Monday and came home on Tuesday. The great tea party was last Wednesday, Anna, Kate and I went. Addy Bloomfield sends her kindest love. Now dear George, I have no more to say so I must say goodbye. All join with me in love,
Believe me
Your affectionate sister
Ellen Chandler
