Three page letter from Catherine Mackay (2)

Second page of a three page letter from Catherine Mackay to the parochial board requesting poor relief.

On this second page Catherine Mackay writes that she has never had good health as confirmed by doctors. She was previously able to help out in household matters but says that she really doesn't know what the enjoyment of good health is.

She says that her father who had fought in the Peninsular War and was injured at Waterloo had died twenty-two years previous.
