                     Letter 2.
Kansas City, Kansas, R.R.#2 Dec. 18th 1933.
Mrs. John Glynn and family, Williamstown Ireland
Dear aunt and cousins,
I am sorry in being so late with my Christmas letter, hoping it will find you all well as when I last heard from you. We are all well at present, thank God.
It is very fine weather here, also very dry. No snow, so far, and very little rain this fall. Our principal crop this year was grapes and apples. Apples were very good. A little slow selling on account of the hard times
We were very much disappointed when Kathleen did not write and tell us the outcome of the races. I would like to have heard a little about them, so I could say something to those who bought tickets*.
I must tell you  I attended the World's Fair in Chicago, this past summer. It was a very fine trip. We went by auto and were gone about a week. It is a distance of about 540 miles. My two brothers, Patrick and Thomas, myself and my nephew went. My brother, Michael, James' father, that is the brother who is away was home here at the time. So he stayed and took care of the house and farm. I would not have James miss it for anything. He will always remember it. We attended a ladies Convention at the Stevens Hotel. Also the Knights of Columbanus Convention. This is supposed to be the largest hotel in the world. We did not take all our meals there but we took some of them. Chicago is a beautiful city, right on the edge of Lake Michigan.
Dear aunt and cousins, as it is getting late, this will be all for this time. Hoping to hear from you soon. Wishing you the joys of the season, a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Your affectionate cousin and niece, Mary Agnes McGlynn.
