Letter: O.S. Owen, Thurlow Lodge, Clapham, Surrey to his brother John Owen

Scope and Content

LETTER: O.S. Owen, Thurlow Lodge, Clapham, Surrey to his brother John Owen. It is a long time since he has heard from him and is glad to report that he is enjoying good health and his little boy Henry James Owen is growing up fast and the admiration of the neighbourhood. They are very comfortable. Discusses a few friends in Clapham and mentions that he receives a newspaper weekly from Mr. Jones, Paradwys. His brother Richard never writes and he feels a perfect stranger to his relatives in Wales, but he doesn't mind in the least as he knows he will never trouble them for anything. A man called with a message from J.O. who said he had been lodging with him. This man, a carpenter, spoke very ill of J.O.'s wife, how she used to drink and neglect her home etc. the writer has not seen her for about 12 months and is unable to comment. The carpenter told him that J.O. had made a lot of money and has found pure maiden gold and that he is in a large business in New York selling all sorts of stores. He expects a letter from him soon and instructs him not to pay the postage on it and he will do likewise when writing back.
