Description: Writes about seeing grapefruits for the first time: "We got a large box of grape fruit from New York from James. It is a fruit much larger than a lemon or orange and a kind of cross between the two but very nice to eat. Could you get them if I sent some one?". Mentions that his daughter Brighid's throat is very bad and queries if she should take her to hospital but worries that it is overcrowded already with those who were wounded during the Civil War: "Shall I take her to Cussen to have her tonsils done, although the Mercy hospital is overcrowded with wounded at present".
