Eleanor Becker to Wilfred [Becker]

Scope and Content

Eleanor Becker (1815-1894) sister of HL Becker and aunt to Wilfred Becker (b.1850) to her nephew Wilfred from Stratton Lodge, Ryde. She expresses her concern about the Brown family (her sister Eliza married George Penrice Brown and had six children); she has heard he was on the island hiding from his creditors; idleness has brought him to this state but he is now near 80 and cannot work. We cannot let them starve.
