Excerpt from The Aran Islands: Parts III and IV
A letter has come from Michael while I am in Paris. It is in English.
MY dear friend, - I hope that you are in good health since I have heard from you before; it's many a time I do think of you since, and it was not forgetting you I was for the future.
I was at home in the beginning of March for a fortnight and was very bad with the Inﬂuence, but I took good care of myself.
I am getting good wages from the first of this year, and I am afraid I won't be able to stand with it, although it is not hard I am working in a saw-mills and getting the money for the wood and keeping an account of it.
I am getting a letter and some news from home two or three times a week, and they are all well in health, and your friends in the island as well as if I mentioned them.
