100% Irish Linen Union Tea Towel - Mother's Letter To Son

Funny design!

"Dear son, Just a few lines to let you know that I am still alive. I am writing this slowly because I know you can't read fast. You won't know the house when you come home, we've moved. About your father, he has a lovely new job. He has 500 men under him, he cuts the grass at the cemetery. Your sister Mary had a baby this morning, I haven't found out of it's a boy or girl so I don't know if you're an aunt or uncle. I went to the doctors on Thursday and your dad came with me. The doctor put a small tube in my mouth and told me not to talk for 10 minutes, your father offered to buy it off him. Your uncle Patrick died last week in a vat of Irish whiskey at the Dublin Brewery. Some of his workmates tried to save him but he fought them off bravely. They cremated him and it look 3 days to put the fire out. It only rained twice this week, first for 3 days then for 4 days. We had a letter from the undertaker. He said if the last payment on your grandmothers plot wasn't paid in 7 days, up she comes. Your loving mother. Ps I was going to send you 5 pounds but I have already sealed the envelope."
