Having left Talvancroft for two months last summer, Mr and Mrs Stevens and their family spent part of August and September in Switzerland. Mr Stevens and Alfred above the Rhone Valley, at Naye and Villais. Mrs Stevens with her sisters Katie and Octavia Julius, her four daughters, and Constance Parker, in the Bernese Oberland.
Some of the young people went up the Schilthorne, Faulhorn, and had a walking tour over the Grimsel and Furca, whilst Katie Julius and Eva Stevens took tickets for a fortnight and raced about the Swiss railways and lakes, from Lucerne through the S. Gothard into Italy, to Como, Lugano, and Maggiore, back down the beautiful Reuss Valley to Lucerne for Sunday, and then to Berne, Thun, Geneva, Lausanne, and back again to the lake of Thun, joining their companions at Adelbodin.
Unfortunately, the weather was often rather unkind, and somewhat marred the various beautiful excursions. During our last week with friends at Schaffhausen, I (Mrs Stevens) was interested in hearing and seeing something of the capital National schools. Certainly the Swiss, as well as the Germans, might give us useful hints. The religious difficulty is overcome by giving up the first half-hour daily to religion, when the different persuasions send their teachers; and each - Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Jew, etc - have a classroom placed at their disposal.
Florence collected much of the Julius family history recorded here, she wrote the small book "Genealogy: West Indies". At the end of her life with her daughter Christine's assistance she collated her records and sent them to Sir George Alfred Julius of Sydney to carry on the research. Sir George prepared Descendant Charts and notes transferred to this record. These charts were colour coded to each family and Jenifer his Granddaughter tells (in 2001) of her work as a young woman colouring in all the charts.
Florence Julius's letters.

Florence wrote to Archdeacon Julian of St Kitts, setting out what she knew of the family in St Kitts in the 18th & 19th century's. She asked what information on the family was available on the Island to confirm or add to the record. It is presumed she set out what she learned in her booklet "Genealogy - The West Indies" mentioned above.

Dear Cousin George
I was delighted to get your letter last week, and you parcel this. What an excellent tree you have made and the different colours make it far easier to follow. I have not been able to study it yet and will write again later on. I am to dependant now on others and my two home daughters. Eva and Christine happen to be extra busy, Eva is copying out for you a little Julius history that I wrote for my children some few years ago, and I think is fairly correct, in my book I headed each chapter with a genealogy, I will send you the copy as soon as it is finished. I wish I could do it myself but I can only write not read. My Sister Mrs Parker died on Jan 23 1932 her name was Emily not Enid, she was named after Aunt Pem  her godmother who was always very fond of her and left what books she inherited from Grandpapa to her husband the Rev Arthur Parker who died previously.
The copy of will of William Julius is that of my Gt Grandfather, I am of the same gen as your father and we are first cousins. I am very glad to hear such a good account of him, he must be enjoying his vigorous old age. You certainly inherit longevity and vitality from the Julius race - a goodly heritage, tho it is not all pleasure to grow old and take patiently restriction after restriction. Did you ever come across such a case as that of Grandpapa and Granny living to be 91 & 93 dying within two months of each other (incorrect) nursed by their daughter of 70.
I have been much puzzled by our origin; we were told as children that our ancestors came over from Hungary at the persecution of John Huss
(Huss was a Czech martyred in 1415) but I never came across anything to prove it. DeVere Julius about a year before he died found some Julius portraits at Hampton Court and I went to look at them but came to the conclusion that Julius was the christian name, had they been ancestors they must have come to England with Queen Anne. I read up a good bit about this possibility but I don't believe in it; had de Vere lived (he was a most delightful man) he would have looked it up. Should you care to know more you may like to write to de Vere's devoted sister Muriel who lives with their old mother at Petersham; de Vere's only child Diana was given a good appt at the War Office where she still works, but you will have heard all about her from Ethel Julius.
I expect too that you know there is a marble memorial to Capt William Julius on the Sth wall of Westminster Abbey.
Yours most sincerely
