Dear. Mrs Irwin

I am writing on behalf of my Sister, (Florrie Mother who fells she cannot aswer your kind letter just a present so she asked me if I would do so for her.

We seemed very surprised to hear that you have not heard what Florrie died of. No doubt between this you have done so. in case you have not. I must tell you: Florrie was confined on Oct 23. But had to have an operation, the Baby died only living a few minutes it was a beatuiful boy with dark curlyie hair. Poor Florrie was taken with fits which she had 13 in 16 hours never regaining conciousness and dying for days afterward which she looked most peaceful, Dear Mrs Irwin did you know she had to go under a treatment while carrying while living at Ashford the Dr sent her up to a London Hospital which she was attending all the time But through it all she suffered very much. more than one can tell in this world although the girl was so bright and cheerful. through it all, no one can tell how she is missed instead of only one month it seems years already she has been gone,: she was loved by every one, and I am sure. Harold and Florrie was devoted to one another There is only one thing we must all look on the bright side of things, and think it happened for some good cause although we may not see it. I would like to write a longer letter but being very pressed for time as I have several more letters to write trusting you are all keeping well.

Yours Very Sincerely
Beatrice Jones.
