George Wilson Stanley in Ireland from Canada
Feb 4, 1912
I had a postcard from Wheldale, Olive got one too. Mine was Whey
sitting on a camel ready for his journey to Damascus. I recognized him
at once. I have just invested in a cow. She has a heifer calf only a few
weeks old so I will have milk. When you come out I will have good milk
for you. I have a couple of little pigs also. I am going to try to get
a few more hens so as to have lots of eggs this summer so you can see I
am preparing for summer. Other years when I have been batching I could
do without what I could not get handy, but now that I intend marrying,
I will have to do things properly. It is a pleasant prospect to look forward
to, even if it were for no other reason than for the change from batching.
For if there is anything I dislike more than anything it is batching alone.
But (D.V.) I will cease on the 20th March 1912. I am Sec. Tres. and
Trustee for the school this year @ $20 per year. Every little bit helps.
