Letter Collection - King Family; 19-33
Letter Collection - King FamilyAbout this object
This Collection of 13 letters were written by Nell King, who was married to Arthur King. The letters were written to Wal and Rhoda (surmname unknown at present)
Dates include 1928 to 1935. There are 3 letters written after Nell's husband Art (Arthur) had died.
The letters are personal, telling of hardship with establishing the family in New Zealand. They first farmed at Te Arai, and then moved to Coal Hill, Mangawhai, and then Mamaku, Rotorua.
The letters have been copied from original letters held in England by a descendent
of Wal and Rhoda. The Collection also includes photographs.
