Westfield DunbarMay 23d 1914Dear Cousin JohnIt seems a long time since I heard anything of you, not this year, I am glad we have now got into the long "Bonnie Days" as Hardie Hay used to say I have felt it a very very long winter & spring I hope you have kept very well & you will now be enjoying the sunny days. I have not heard very recently from the Hays but when I did they were all about their usual & James Hay was down stairs every day, he is now in his 91st year. I am hoping to let this House this summer, I have put it on the House agents list but there are so very many to let now-a-days I am not very [illegible]ine but will hope for the best, I have not bee from Home for 8 or 9 years I trust your Wanda & Helen with all their little ones are very well. Your book is giving much pleasure to all who read it. The Newton family of Omaha are going to travel in Europe for more than a year they tell me I expect they will be in Scotland some of the time05749
