Letters: Auntie Glad [Jane Gwladus Hopkins Jones], Wolverhampton and The Cottage, to Hugh [Virgo Williams]

Scope and Content

LETTERS: (11) Auntie Glad [Jane Gwladus Hopkins Jones], Wolverhampton and The Cottage, to Hugh [Virgo Williams] Sorry that Auntie Gwen's affairs are giving you so much trouble. Bucky has had a son, Christopher. He is Uncle Evan's first Grandson. She lists shares sold by Fenn & Crosthwaite. She is sending him Gwen's bank accounts for 1957 - 1959 and stubs from her paying in book and cheque book. She suggests putting the claims for return of income tax in the hands of the accountant. She thought she had come to the end of Auntie Gwen's papers but has found several suitcases and boxes filled with papers in the little north bedroom. In later letters she lists what she has found in them. In March she lists the shares she would like to keep. She is having trouble reading and is seeing the eye specialist. [This shows in the deterioration of her writing]. [June] Your mother has a nurse now to relieve El [Elinor Jones, née Williams] She encloses letters to her Grandmother which show that she inherited this house [The Cottage] in 1869. [See WDAAR/4/80]. Gwen could have deposited the deeds at Barclays Bank. She is not surprised to hear that the share value has fallen as recent events have affected S. African shares very badly. The man from Aylesbury instructed by your solicitors has been to value the house. She has checked and none of the addresses you want are in Auntie Gwen's address book. [October] She is glad the legacies will soon be paid as one of the legatees is a helpless invalid in great need. She wants him to buy the 46 (rights) shares in Bowater for her. The floods hardly affected them. The water came up the slope but retreated the next day. The Orchard Holiday Home has been closed. It became too much for Miss Humphreys the superintendent.
