Victoria, Grey Street, St Kilda, October 2st 1877
My very very dear Sister,
I cannot tell you how delighted I was to get your very welcome letter. 
I must say I had long thought I was forgotton by all whom I loved in the dear old country, that is as far as letter writing. But dear old Uncle John Gratten sends me a Dublin Paper every month for which I am so thankful for Fanny used to write to me but I have not had a line now for 9 years. Just fancy that. I often wondered the cause of such silence between us and as for your dear self and Edward & Susan I could not think what had become of you all. I often and often thought of you and longed to hear of you all. Had I known where to write I would not have kept silence so long. 
And now dear Matilda as the ice is broken I hope and trust we shall corspound
