"The Manse, Oakfield, 23/12/07
Very glad to hear from you am not writing a letter as we hope to see you home soon. Had a letter from Mary tonight, the first this month. She is well. Had seen M.K. Grant - was quite well when she wrote. We are having a great rain. Anne said Jean must be on her way home. Rick sent two turkeys home and help us eat them.
Yours with love,
M.L. [Margaret Layton]"
