A little family history for you

Dear Mr Jones,

Thank you for your enquiry of 17th April, in which you request
informationconcerning Robert Hardie Wilson and Julia Allen.The only information
we have relates to Mr Wilson. The minutes of a meeting held on 10th October 1901
state that "Mr Wilson, who acted as secretary ofthe club for the past five
months should receive remuneration to the extentof £75". His employment in this
capacity probably began in April of thatyear, after the existing secretary
resigned, having been in the position foronly one year.Unfortunately, we have no
further details and I have been unable to find anyreference to Julia Allen.I
hope the information supplied i! s of some use. If I can be of any
furtherassistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,Angela

My cousin Mike has been digging into our family history and it turns out that my great grandfather was the secretary for the St. Andrews golf club, the birthplace of golf. Thanks to Auntie Anne for forwarding this information to me.

so how'd it go at the mall yesterday? Did you get lots of reading done? Hope you enjoyed it.

Baron Von Cliff said...

Who reads at the mall?

Shiny Beamer said...

thoughtful husbands who are lovingly protective of their ladies so they can have some fun at "girl's night out"!

So LEAVE LIAM ALONE!

I am filling the role of 'guy friend', which means I am required to mock Liam without respite. I'm simply doing my job.

Shiny Beamer said...

well, yes. I must say you are quite good at it, Mr. Cliff! : )

Baron Von Cliff said...

Thank you, I take the role very seriously. I was going to get the formal training, but they told me I didn't really need it when I made the instructor cry.

I can only imagine...
