    Dear Ethel
    Your letter has just come so I am answering it at once to give your Grannies’ address. It is "Beverley" Ray Road, Epping.
    Poor old soul has just about reached her end. About a month ago or it may be six weeks she took ill with cancer of the stomach, and has been very sick. Mother's letter today says she is weakening very much and the Doctor says she is likely to go off any time. She is suffering great pain and has to have morphia to ease her. Father went down on Saturday to see her. Poor old soul was 88 on Sunday. It seems hard that she should have such an end after the wonderfully active life she has led, and she has lived to a good age.
    No Ethel I have not been at all well, and am going away on Friday down to Terrigal till at least the end of February. I feel the heat here very much and am never well really in the summer time. I really do not like going and leaving Mr Grant for Christmas, but he will not hear of me staying. It is always such a busy time for me, and I don't feel that I can cope with all the work in the heat. Dorothy is needing a holiday too. Bruce keeps very well. He is such a dear little chap and getting on so well. You would not know him now. They will all love him at home I'm sure.
    I haven't seen Alex for months. He came in about three weeks ago on Sunday to take us for a drive, but I was sick at the time, and in bed. When are he and Dorrie going to be married? I've been going to write to Dorrie several times but the days just simply fly and I am kept busy with the sewing and lots of other duties.
    Unfortunately at the beginning of the year I lost my good girl, and have had no less than four since. The one I have now has been with me six months, but not any one of them is as good as Ruth was.
    Yes we have had plenty of rain, and it makes it so close and muggy, but you Queensland people have had more than your share. Isn't it disappointing too when the rain comes and spoils all the garden, after one has worked so hard. While your people and we on the North Coast have the rain, the poor folk out West in NSW are having the bush fires. They must be awful out Cobar way.
    Of course I am very busy packing up and seeing to everything. There is always such a lot to do at the last with children, but its worth it when there is a nice change at the end of it all. We are going to Terrigal, just out of Gosford to Mother, and may have two or three weeks in Sydney.
    I must close now, and get on with my work, but wanted to let you have Grannies address without delay.
    My love to Dorrie and I'll try and write her a few lines while I am away. A very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. to you all.
    Love and kisses from us all.
    Yours lovingly
    Bee Grant.11
