Tom & Maggie



A letter written by Tom Fasham to his wife Maggie in 1930 just shortly
before he unexpectedly died. Tom was in Maryborough when he wrote the letter

I am glad to hear the news about Millie & hope she will get
better just smartly, no broom & duster dodging, tell Ken he'd better
come up to Marybro & camp with Pa & cook his dinner
How is little Margaret I hope to have a good mate in her
in a year or so. Now I must close, give my love to all
not forgetting Louisa & Holdhard, Windy & Pat on the back
& lastly my dear little baby Ol, be very careful with her & keep her
feet well wrapped up so that she wont catch cold, give her 1 teaspoonful
soothing syrup(razor strap) every morning to keep her quiet during day
& tell her not to be running out these cold nights if she hears anyone
walking round the house, just let them take anything they want.
& if she dreams there is any one under the bed, ask her not to call out
she might wake the Baby --- How is baby you never mentioned
anything about her in your letter
Must close now 10 to 2 With best love to all
& Eva, & to your own dear self from

N.B The baby Tom refers to is granddaughter, Barbara Keogh
