    Dear Readers:
    You may be interested to know that I still have in my possession the little history book, referred to in my late sister’s story. The treasured book still contains the very words written by my mother on that fateful day in 1921.

    I have sent in a picture of the book – Longmans Historical Series for Schools , Book II – “A HISTORY OF GREAT BRITAIN [From The Earliest Times to the Death of Queen Victoria] “, written by T.F. Tout M.A., together with another picture of my mother’s words written inside the front cover

    Perhaps John Goode will be kind enough to publish them on the website at some stage.
