    Sunday 9th/18
    Dear Laurie, Your father came home yesterday & went back this evening. I enquired the freight on shovel & it is one shilling by passenger & more by the goods train, so you father told me to send it so as we could not take it well in the Express as we are going by Express next Sunday morning all being well. I will send the shovel next Wednesday 12th by passenger train, will send it by goods to Tintiara then it will go on by passenger from there, so you can enquire for it on Thursday morning. If you do not get it then will you enquire on Saturday morning because if the Goods is late on Wednesday well I will send it Friday so you understand, I will book the guard the money and to pay for it, he will book it from Tintinara. What do you think of this card. Love from mother to all.
