My dear Cousin,
Thank you very much for your kind letter, received this morning. I had a letter by the same post from my sister Mary, from Wilmcote. I opened it first and it was quite a shock to me to hear from Mary that Sarah Dewe had passed away "on the 5th or 6th of February". Mary supposes that I have heard this news, and says she heard it from our cousin, Mrs Fortescue, (Alice) who was one of Sarah's executors. The other was, as you know, Mr Ashwin. Mary
concludes that I had heard from Mrs Ashwin, because our cousins, Alice Fortescue, told her that Sarah had left "a coffee pot" to me. I have not heard from Mr Ashwin, or heard anything more so I cannot tell you what Sarah's last illness was, or how long, or any thing more than the fact. Then on opening your letter, I gathered a little more, for it could not have been a long illness, as she wrote to you on January? 30th, and smoke cheerfully. Possibly the fire of the neighbours chimney may have been something of a shock, and the smoke and smuts in her drawing room may have induced bronchitis, in one who has
always been subject to that illness. I can only conjecture. I will write to Mrs Ashwin, she used to correspond rather frequently with my sister Catherine, I will ask her for particulars, and then I will tell you all I hear. Dear Sarah used to stay with Mrs Ashwin and Mrs Ashwin with Sarah every year. In my last letter from Sarah, (I am not sure of the date, but since Christmas) she seemed rather to be dreading the move she had to make when she gave up her house in June, and I was intending to write and ask her if she could spend some time here, when ever it might be convenient, in June or later. It is probable that I might have written today, (the thought of doing something to help her leaving has been so often in my mind,) had I not had your letter,
and my sister Mary's. Now our dear cousin Sarah has a better Home and one more beautiful and happy than anyone could dream of on earth. And she is with father, mother, brothers and sisters: not one of the family left on earth to grieve in loneliness!
Please forgive my writing so long a letter, may I add how glad I am to hear of yourself, that you are well and able to get about, and drive daily to chapel and dinner at college. I must apologise for my imperfect address on the cover of this letter. I know it is quite incorrect to style you simply "Esq" I am stupid, and ignorant. Again thanking you.
Your affectionate Cousin
Georgiana F Jackson.

My dear Cousin,
I have today received a letter from Mrs Ashwin, giving me the account I so much wish to have, of dear Sarah Dewes illness and death. I feel sure that you would like to see the letter, so I enclose it, though perhaps by this time you may have had particulars sent to
yourself. I did not know Mrs Ashwin's address, so I sent my letter to Alice Fortescue to be forwarded: this has caused delay. I have had two letters from my sister Mary in both she says she has still heard no particulars, and only knows the fact of Sarah's death. I am sure she would like to see Mrs Ashwin's letter, so, I hope I am not giving you too much trouble, but I should be grateful to you, if you would be kind enough to send it on to
my sister, in the cover I enclose, when ever convenient. In my letter from Mary today, she tells me that our cousins, Lawrence Fortescue, is very ill, dangerously so. He has been living in London for several months. His wife (Emmie) wrote to me the end of last summer saying they were uncertain where to settle, and thought of Worthing, as it would be a warm place. We begged them to come to us, and "look about". However they never did this and to our disappointment they gave up the idea of Worthing, and settled in London Lawrence's illness is "cattarals of the throat". If I hear anything
more definite, I shall be glad to write and let you know. Mrs Ashwin, as you will see, tells me that Sarah has been kind enough to leave me a coffee pot. This is a long letter to trouble you.
G F Jackson.

My dear Cousin
Thank you very much for your kind letter (below), and for caring to have some old books which my sister put aside for me to send to you, if you wrote to say you would care to have them.
You kindly offer to send me a copy of the pedigree of the families etc etc, which you are drawing up, if it is lithographed. Please excuse or forgive my stupidity, if I say that it really would be a shame that you should send me anything
so valuable, for I am too old now to take interest in what would have interested me years back, before I became so slow, and my mind confused.
Thanking you again for your kindness.
Georgina F Jackson.

My dear cousin1
Your sister writes me that you have very kindly offered to let me have to old books containing the book plate of Dickson Downing and his son George Downing. I have a large collection of Downing relics - and shall be very pleased to have these books. Curiously enough I have the original copper plate from which these bookplates were printed it was originally engraved with Dixon Downing under the coat of arms's but after his death in 1745, his son George had Dixon erased and George engraved instead and used it at his book plate. I have been drawing up a combined pedigree of the Downing, Baldwin, Woolly and Chambers families & their connections which I hope shortly to have lithographed and if you are interested I shall be glad to give you a copy when finished.
I am yours etc
yours very sincerely
Edward H Liveing
