Burrard has gone to work in the Whiteorn[?] factory got tired waiting for work to come to him I guess for this was a sure a bad year for painters but than we will pull through some thing always to worry about but than we do not as it cannot help any to do that. Now I hope you are getting used to your grief for we are made that way and than I know when you feel him so near you will have such a feeling of him onely going on a little be for you and will be waiting for you in that brighter and better world.
