664A Mt Eden Rd 28.8.60 Dear Donald, Thank you for your interesting letter, which we all enjoyed. Your time at Canberra is drawing to an end. We are looking forward to seeing you before you take off for your next venture. We hear U.S.A., Israel, U.K. all mentioned. We hope it will be U.K. you go to. We like to think N.Z s best brains go to our own Kingdom for one thing, for another […]

Letter 1957-12-23 Fanny Foote – Donald Lang

664A Mt Eden Rd 23.12.57 Dear Donald, Thank you for your Christmas message. We enjoyed it & Elizabeth says it is the best card we received. More to it, if you know what I mean. Hope you enjoyed your flight(Week in Sydney, tramping in Snowy, on to start PhD at ANU) & didn’t have any bumps. Reports of the heat in Sydney are not nice reading. I hope you haven’t melted to a grease spot. […]

Letter 1950-08-20 Fanny Foote- Donald Lang

Cheltenham Aug 20th 1950 Dear Donald, We have just spent four days in Oxford, & could have done with four more. However we hope to go back later in the year. Our Cousin Gilbert Wiblin a lad about my age (Aunt Fanny is 73), took us over many of the colleges, beautiful buildings many of them are, & they all have large quadrangles of perfect lawns & gardens. The finest one is Magdalen, where your […]

Letter 1960-12-16 Eva Wilson – Donald Lang

664A Mt Eden Rd Mt Eden S.1. 16.12.60 Dear Donald, Thank you for your fine letter of sympathy, it was much appreciated by us all. Truly Aunt Fanny has been a good example to us, she was sustained by her faith in God right through her illness, & her courage never failed.

Letter 1883-05-18 Fred A Nutter – Lucy Nutter

Cambridge 18th May 1883 Dear Lucy, I got up here last night all right & was to go on to our camp today. We started with two buggies but came to grief, smashing the axle, after hair-breadth adventures. However we go on with a waggon tomorrow morning & I hope reach our destination before night. Mr Hickson goes down tomorrow morning much against his will. His being away will put us back a good bit. […]

Letter 1882-02-23 Nutter, Lucy (Cambridge) – Nutter, Lucy

Beech House Cambridge Feb 23, 1882 My dear Lucy, I have often thought of my namesake across the ocean, & it occurred to me the other day, I should like to begin a correspondence with my cousin. I shall find it rather difficult as the receiver of this letter is unknown to me, & the one remembrance I have of you, is your photograph, which was taken when you were about ten or eleven years […]

Letter 1881-04-02 Fred A Nutter – Lucy Nutter

Auckland April 2nd 1881 Dear Lucy, I need scarcely inform you that it is some time since I last wrote to you & I suppose it is likewise useless to express my regrets which however are heart-felt. I really do not know that I have much to say, as I suppose Susie has given you all the news. She seems to spend most of her time writing south. Firstly I must thank you & Emma […]

Letter 1881-01-25 Fred A Nutter – Lucy Nutter

[Written on one sheet of paper – maybe there was another page folded inside. But he says never writes more than one sheet] Auckland January 25th 1881 Dear Lucy, I have not written for some time. The cause is idleness. I have been on camp since the beginning of November – am now in town for an indefinite period, I may have to go out tomorrow or perhaps not for three months. I received a […]

Letter 1882-07-26 Frederick H Nutter – Lucy Nutter

Auckland 26 July 1882 Dear Lucy, I am writing in the Vincent Street dining room, as we are here this evening to tea. Grandpapa is away at the Bay, having been sent for to Cousin Edward Clarke who it was feared had an attack of typhoid fever, but from a telegram received from the Bay today, he is much better and it was only apparently over fatigue from watching at the bedside of Cousin William’s […]
