May 15th 1909 To my dear boys I cannot tell how long it may be before you read these few lines. What I do want you to understand is that my Dear Wife, in case anything happens to me, will have a small family to bring up and it will take every penny that we have saved for this purpose, and try and remember that I have always done my best for you all to start you in life, and as you grow up, and perhaps become fathers yourselves, you will understand what a struggle it is to bring up children. I hardly think it is necessary for me to bring up what a wonderful little woman my Wife has been to get on so well with you all, and I must tell you that very often after I have been cross with either [sic] of you, she has always taken your parts, and pray never forget her or my dear little ones is the fervent wish of your loving Father Geo: Wroe.
