Sepia Saturday August 16th 2014 Letter Writing

In 1934 Greeba Craine was holidaying out of town with her mother, we think probably in Ballarat with the reference to Uncle Mac, and her father wrote her this letter. Although I have several other pages of his writings for this letter there seems to be a page missing. Although not born on the Isle of Man he was very proud of his Manx heritage, and his writings are sprinkled with the language – so ‘Greeba Veg Veen’ is ‘dear little Greeba’

  1. Love the drawing of the hand (nicely done!), and I hope the poem ‘kept’ and Greeba did receive it another time. What a dad!
