Transcription:

"Dear Ms. Kennelly -
"Davy Byrne sated after his yawn said with tear washed eyes:
- And is that a fact. Decent quiet man he is, I often saw him in here and I never once saw him, you know, over the line.
- God Almighty couldn't make him drink, Nosey Flynn said firmly."
Happy Bloomday! T.E. Kennelly"
