[6]Restoration of Danbar Parish church - sometimes I think he is to be worried beyond endurance with the bother however the estimates are all signed now, and when you come again you will not know the interior of the 'Auld Kirk." Auntie [Lunam?] & Maggie are well but you will likely be hearing from them now & then. Our boys and girls are all well and happy. John has still gone on successfully took last summer the "holt Scholarship 100 pounds - but he finds he has to work hard for it in the [illegible]room. He has got Dr. to his name but is not finished another exam wants for "Mr. B." He is working very hard and looks white I tell him. Jamie is still devoted to Art painting[7]pictures and attending the Art school. Maria is housekeeper for the last year since my health failed and baby - 'Peggie' is now at school Oh how nice if you were not so far away and we could meet (our families) sometimes. I am wanted to take a little walk while the sun shines and so I must close.There is one to whom distance is as nothing, and in His love we rest and trust. Give my love to Mrs. Muir and the dear bairns and believe me your affectional counsinAnnie Hay
