110 Rue du Bac,
Dear Mrs Reid -
I have been ill since we received your husbands letter announcing the great event, or I should have written before this to tell you how much we congratulate [p. 2] you - and the young McNeill - on his appearance into this world -
Be sure when his name is registered it is spelt with two ll's - and not with one - !!
We hope by this time you are well again -
With kindest regards regards [sic] from us both and our love to the McNeill -
Very sincerely Yours
