To Mrs. Richard Laidman

Dear Cousin

I am requested by my Aunt Elizabeth Leng to write to you to say that she received your ever welcome letter. She often talks about you and tells us of your kindness when she was in Canada.

I am sorry to say that she has been laid in bed for about two years. She fell and broke her leg and has not able to get up since. After her fall she did not know where she was for five months it affected her memory. Aunt Mary Ann from Oldham who is 83 years old was with her at the time when she said that she fell over a Backing Bord but she does not know herself she had two Doctors and a Trained Nurse to wait upon her. The Doctor says that she will not be able to walk again. She stayed at her own home for a year after the accident then when and brought her to Redmire. Aunt wants to know if Richard Arthur and Elizabeth Ann is living and where they are and if cousin Bessy and John is living. Please do you know where Helen Nicoll is and her sister Alice and her brother William Nicoll is and would you please tell
Helen to write and send us their address.

I am your affectionate cousin
Jeremiah R. Heslop

Please to write soone.
