A letter from Patrick O'Loughlin (1875 - 1937) to his wife Ellen (1881- 1964). Patrick made a number of trips to a Mrs C. Henry in Glasgow to purchase goods from the shop. This letter was written while on one of those trips and refers to the journey over and the goods he intended to buy. Included is a postcard of an image of Patrick and Ellen that was posted at a later date.
Patrick and Ellen ran a small shop at 39 Lower Kevin Street in Dublin, selling second-hand clothes/boots/shoes.
