The letters in the attachment were written to Helena (Ella) and Minnie Sulman in England by their Australian cousins Sir John Sulman (my great grandfather), Annie, Lady Sulman (my great grandmother) and Florence (Florrie) Sulman my great aunt. Jeremy Wagener, Helena’s great nephew, kindly gave them to me.
