How ya getting on and whadda ya at? Back just from Newfoundland, b’y, and t’was lovely grand. In three weeks, buddy can’t knows it all, but people is best kind and tells ya’ what yer at if you come from away. You got naught when buddy asks who knit ya, but so long as you’re after trying yer best and none says, “ye got me drove”, well, dats proper ting. Youse stays away from the hard ticket and lard tunderin’ you’ll have a time. But shag it if skipper wants to ‘ave a yarn, me duckie – no b’y. And hardly a mausey day, but now da once and what odds, anyhow? Altogether, some shockin’ good, b’y! Ah, Newfoundland, I’ll drop over ‘round by and by.
Translation: How are you and what are you up to today? I have just returned from Newfoundland and it was wonderful. In three weeks, one can’t learn everything, but the people are great; very helpful and friendly with visitors. You won’t be able to engage in the common Newfoundlander conversations about family and hometown connections, but as long as you try to contribute and don’t behave in an annoying way, that’s okay. Avoid troublemakers and you will have a good time. But if an elder wishes to engage you in conversation, don’t even try! You won’t understand. The weather was excellent and it was altogether an outstanding trip. I will definitely go back and visit again.
