My dear George
I should have come to see you last Sunday but unfortunately I had a prior engagement. I hope you will enjoy your holidays, I only wish I was going with you. Give my kind love to uncle and aunt and to all at home. Is there any business about your way, we are getting busy now. Suppose you will go home by the Parly. train, it is much the cheapest.
your affectionate Cousin
P.S.You must let me know when you come back and I will come and see you.
