December 29th 1853
My Dear Madam,
May I beg to entrust to your keeping the accompanying little cadeau for my Godson Arthur Onslow Julius, with my very warmest wishes for his wellbeing here and his still better being hereafter.
It never occured to me till it was to late to give the order, to have the date of his birth and the year engraved on the cup, but as I perceive there is a blank sheild on one of its sides of a most inviting character for that purpose, I can hardly resist the temptation, if you will allow me, with taking it to Town with me on the first opportunity that offers itself.I will take especial care to have the figures more distinctly marked than those in the monogram on the obverse side of the cup which represent A.O.J.
Believe me to be
My dear madam
Your very faithful
Humble servant

THE TIMES 4 May 1929.
Many tributes of respect at Ham Church ceremony.
It was with great regret that we announced in our mid-weekly issue the death on Sunday of Mr. Arthur Onslow Julius, at 113, Church Road. Mr Julius, who was seventy-five years of age, was head of one of the oldest Richmond families. He was born at The Wardrobe Court, which was the residence of the family before the late Lord Cave lived there.
Mr. Julius was a solicitor, and continued practicing to the time of his last illness. He and his family lived in Ham some time ago for about eighteen years and during that time he took a prominent part in the life of the village. He was a churchwarden for several years, was chairman of the District Council and manager of the schools. His simple manner and kindly personality won him many friends. He leaves a widow and a married son, who is a partner in his father's firm. Another of his sons was killed in Mesopotamia during the war
The body was taken to St. Andrew's Church, Ham, on Wednesday evening, and remained there all night. A service was held in the church on Thursday afternoon, and it was attended by a large number of friends. The chief mourners were, Mrs. Julius (widow), Mr. Dudley Julius (son). Mrs. Hunt (sister), Mrs. Dudley Julius (daughter-in-law), Colonel and Mrs. Julius (cousins), Miss Ethel Julius (cousin), the Misses Bateman (nieces), Colonel and Mrs. Woodifield (brother-in-law), the Misses Woodifield (sisters-in-law), Mr. and Mrs. Percy Elworthy (niece), Dr. and Mrs. Charles Fenn (nephew), Mr. Leslie, Hull (cousin), Mrs George Hunt, and Mrs E.C.P. Hull.
The service was fully choral, the hymns "How bright those glorious spirits shine" and "Lead, kindly light" being sung. Mr. Reed was at the organ. The officiating clergy were the Rev. J. R. Pridie (vicar of Ham), the Rev. H. M. Gray (vicar of Richmond), and the Rev. Vanderzee Fenn (nephew of the late Mr. Julius). The interment afterwards took place in Ham Churchyard. There were many beautiful floral emblems.
