  Letter from J Platt to Aunt re Condolence 19-Mar-1887
March 19th 1887
Dear Aunt,
Many thanks for
your card conveying the
sad news. Poor man he
has gone at last & perhaps
it is the best it should
be so under the long
painful circumstances
& feel very sorry for Aunt.
She has had a long time
of trouble & now the end
has come I hope her nerves
will not give way, although

they will be sorely tried.
She should therefore bear up as well
as possible otherwise a
reaction might retain, after
the long trial her strength
has had to bear. She should
in my opinion get away
for a month's quiet rest
as soon as possible for a complete
change of scene. I am sure
she would derive the greatest
benefit from it. I would
have run over today to see
her, but then I thought
I could no nothing. I might
only be in the way. I have
written her a short letter
of condolence. I told her I
will look in early on
Monday about 10.30 to
see if I can do anything
for her. Be sure you make
her bear up & face bravely
the terrible affliction God
has sent to her.
Believe me
your affectionate nephew,
James E Platt


  Letter from Joseph Arthur Platt, Tettenhall to Alfred Greaves Hall re death of mother
Feb 29th
Tettenhall Towers

My dear Alfred,
I am so
very sorry to hear of your
mother's death, poor
dear, how she loved you
all, and us too, you
will feel it very hard.

I am sure you have all
my sympathy. I cannot
come to the funeral
as I have been a fortnight
in bed with bronchitis
and only just up for
an hour today. I would
certainly have come
and seen the last of
her if I could have.
Give my love to you
Your affectionate cousin
Joe A Platt
