Dearest Rose (& John)

Herewith your snap. It is lovely, John said you want it to put in your album. I am looking forward to other snaps of course. I'm so pleased the breast feeding is going so well & you are making a good recovery. Of course you are sure to get tired with the two of them (I can't write so well now). Thats why I am printing this. Nellie will take time to adjust. Her little life has been turned upside down and she's bound to feel jealous. You will feel at a low ebb Rose just now but, Rose it will get better I can assure you. You know I am thinking of you and feeling for you all. Take each day as it comes, don't try to do too much Rose dear. Its early days yet  I believe in the old days, when mothers were kept in bed a couple of weeks to rest up and there always seemed to be a relative or good neibor to help out. It gave the mother time to recover properly & give all a chance to accept the new baby. I think of my mother going through it 13 times  God knows how she did it and survive to 85 years, yet she loved us all  She must have spent most of her life washing nappies! Linda is going to post this on her way home  
Take care, love you all  Hope his little bottom is better  Kiss them both for me   As always
          Loving Mother
