George Wilson Stanley in Ireland from Canada
April 4, 1913
Thanks for your last. I have moved up home now. Olive is quite over
the fever now and able to be up and around a little although very weak.
I have not had an answer from you telling you that she has been sick yet
and it is nearly two months since she was taken sick. I hope to go
out to work very soon, maybe on Monday. I think I can get work at the Fort
for a while at $6 per day. I hope to make good wages all summer if possible.
I have not been able to get a good cow as yet for baby. Cattle are
very dear now but I think I can get one later on. We have got 3 cows, 1
2 year old heifer, and I hope to have 6 head of horses and hope to have
a colt this spring. I have two pigs, both to have young in July. So I expect
to have quite a few head of stock next year if all is well.
Baby is doing not too bad. I got him a nice carriage on Olive's birthday,
March 20, our wedding day.
