dc.description.abstractLetter from Mr Baber / on his leaving Kilmore / 2 ?? / / Kilmore / 8th March 1881 / / My Dear Mr Hare / / I conjectured when I left here in July last, that six months would wind up the ? settled state of affairs then existing. But so far as I can see we are no nearer that goal than we were then. I have therefore determined not to let the opportunity pass in securing a place at… It is the only one that now offers itself. But I could … take advantage of the old “Black Swan” … put … a tolerable good state of affairs and divided into two dwellings and I have taken the one which appears the most inviting. This seems to be my only resource – how long I may be there, goodness knows. / I have to thank you for allowing my family to remain at Kilmore, undisturbed so long and I most sincerely thank you for the many kindnesses which have emanated from you during the period of service I have had the pleasure of passing under your direction. / Believe me to remain / Dear Mr Hare / Faithfully yours / Henry Baber / / ps / I shall vacate the quarters today and hand the keys to Mr Deasey. / HB /en_US
