No wonder for the death of Mrs Hall so soon after that of Mrs Jackson must have been a very great shock & trials & of course she had much business to settle. Ashby sent me a military Xmas card - which has just been forwarded to me here. Miss Hodges kindly wrote to tell me that Charlie was a free man and coming to England so I am hoping to see him as he will be staying one of Red X in London. Poor boy! I do feel for him a stranger in London & what a different home going his will be to that of the Ashby's. No father or mother to greet him or I suppose brother & sister quite away from where he will be. I suppose he has not the opportunity of visiting Melbourne - or is nearer to Sydney where his uncle Syd can often see him. I think I told you in my last that I intended sending certain portraits to you and Ella. They are to be packed ready, to be sent when it is decided how and I hope they may not be injured in any way.
You are to have the portraits of your Gt Grandfather Trull, & smaller ones of your gr grandmother & your gt grandfather Trull, my mother's parents. I dare say you know that my Grannie had 3 husbands but I will not enter into that, in case you get confused.
I am glad to hear the young brides are likely to add to the population - but I do hope the little ones may be of the masculine gender. I hope Wesley has quite recovered from whooping cough & that the rest of your family are keeping well.
We are having damp & dismal weather but hope for a bright spring. Best love to you and yours, Your affectionate aunt, M Gillham

     Arthur Frederick Hooper received a letter from Mary Ann Hooper dated 28 October 1919. Maida Vale W9, Oct 28 1919 My dear Arthur
I a generally considered very ... but, from your experience I am sure you will not agree with my friends! Now in the first place I am sorry to disappoint you but that album is meant for Syd. He took a fancy to it when he came to see me & (I do not think that I promised him he should have it) only thought that I would give it to him & as I was sending the portraits I deemed it a good opportunity to send it with them. But I ought to have told you that I meant it for him. Now about the portraits! The handsome young man in pastel's ... is Darby and he is your great grandfather. The large portrait of a toothless? old gentleman is also your great grandfather Trull by name.
A short time before Mr Gillham's death the picture fell hence that hole in it! I am not superstitious by many think such a fall portends a death I know. Now the two smaller pictures in old fashioned dress, are portraits of your great grandfather and great grandmother Trull. The two portraits that I suppose were in a case together are for Ella and are likenesses of your grandmother Hooper and her uncle William Trull who was devoted to her & I supposed wished to be taken at the same time. Your grandmother Hooper's father died 6 months before she was born. I cannot give you any times of birth or death today, but will try to do so another time. Ashby is taking with him, two miniatures for you. One of your gt grandfather Hooper & one of your great grandmother Trull.
I do hope you may be able to understand the relationships!
We are still in a very miserable state. In this ... as well as outside owing to our difficulty in getting someone to take Rose's place & as she is so devoted to her mistress & would not like to leave her without a competent servant I shall not be surprised if she puts off her marriage until next year for, at present, she cannot get a passage & it would not do for her to arrive in India during the hottest season.
I will only add my love to this long letter from Your affectionate aunt, M Gillham
.
     Arthur Frederick Hooper received a letter from Mary Ann Hooper dated 22 November 1919. My dear Arthur, Now I am going to tell the little I know of our ancestry & Ashby is bringing you 2 miniatures - one of your gt grandmother Trull who died in 1856 at the age of 77 & the other of your great grandfather Hooper (with his pigtail!) who died in 1840 at the age of 66. We never had a likeness of his wife. All I know of her is that her maiden name was Darby & that she died in 1839 at the age of 55.
The 2 framed likenesses you have are of your gt grandfather Trull (who died 6 months before your Gt (?) grandmother Hooper was born. Is this the one you spoke of as having .. so untidy? The larger picture you have is of your dear old gt gt grandfather Trull. I cannot give any information! I have had a very nice? photo of your grandmother Hooper but such as it is I will enclose a copy. Of course you know the portraits Ella has are of her grandmother Hooper & of our Gt Uncle Trull. She made a mistake in thinking it was of her grandfather.
We are still very anxious as to what may become of us if our Rose should leave. She cannot get a passage to India yet but another trouble is that her sister is ill & we fear that she must go to help nurse her for she ought not to .. from her couch - & yet she had 5 boys to care for, poor thing & her husband a soldier in France? & we poor things have no one in view!
This dearth of servants is a terrible trial to one "Men Poor?" Hoping you are all well & with love to all.
Your affectionate aunt, Gillham
