Avoca, June 30 - My dear Betha, I was glad to get your letter and hope by this your cold is much better. Your papa heard at Newcastle what a rough passage you had. You did not tell me how our old friends at Newcastle were or who took you to the convent school. I knew you would be shocked to see poor old Bona Vista, but it was even worse when I saw it during the dry weather. I forgot to give you the keys so that you may unpack the drawers in the wardrobe that I may have them sent down to Avoca. I am in a hurry to post this before 2 o'clock. Mr Hungerford was here this morning, he had a very bad cold, caught he thinks coming from Newcastle. Mrs H and the girls are not coming home until next week. Mrs Plunkett was here yesterday and exclaimed at baby's size, declares he is as big as her baby now. Mr Millard also called. He found Fanny in bed at Mr Windeyers with severe cold. He is coming to tea this evening. I thought he looked bery pale. Isabel went to see Fanny on Wednesday and she then had a cold and Issie said was very low spitited. As I have now a spare room I must ask her out for a few days. Mrs Bennet went back to Newcastle last night. We missed you & Lydia and the house seems empty. I have a nice girl as nurse, one who would like to be home & parlor maid and I thought Osmund's younger girl might do as nurse, but they won't come over, although the other children try to impose upon Emily the new nurse. Edward ran off just before dinner when she called him to dress and I had to whip him. They send him for bread & ... for them and all sorts of tricks. I must stop my scribble with much love to your young companions and Lydia & self. Hoping you are tidy, useful girls, Believe me, dear Betha, Your affectionate mother, L F Bowker. Do you play croquet? Your letter is not carefully written. If you come by N.C. try and get a cutting of the red rose, it belonged once to your grandmama Bowker & was given to me by Miss Bingle..
     Elizabeth Steer Bowker received a letter from Lydia Frances Phillips dated 30 June 1878. My dear Betha
I looked for your letter yesterday morning and your Papa was also surprised to hear how you had got up - it blew so hard after you left. I often thought of you all - tho Robert said it was a fair wind. You did not tell us if you were sick or how Edward's cold was or your throat. I fancy Harold legs must have ached the day after he arrived. Did he walk all the way? to be continued.
     Elizabeth Steer Bowker received a letter from Lydia Frances Phillips dated 12 July 1878. 1878 July 12, Avoca - My dear Betha, I got Miss Wood to write to you last Wednesday as I was so busy - I went to the Chester ball, very low spirited and not feeling as if I should enjoy myself but I did more than I expected. Their decorations were very pretty - lots of pot plants in different places around the fountain. It was very lovely & the fountain was playing. The sides were all carpeted to walk on. The sides of the building were all enclosed for dressing rooms. Drawing room, card room and one side was for the supper. Two long tables & 2 across the end & another refreshment room had hot tea and coffee and ices going all the evening. Isabel looked very well and danced every dance. She wore white silk with white tarlatan over and silver flowers - pearls on her neck and arms, silver ferns in her hair and one white camellia. Mrs White's dress was the handsomest in the room, blue and silver worked into the silk. They say it cost £60. There were many blue and white dresses. They are Chester colours. I am sure you will be grieved to hear of Rosie Darley's death. I got a telegram from Mrs D on Tuesday saying Rosie died last night and thought she had made a mistake in the name - that it must be Tarsie?? Rose Scott was with her and wrote me full particulars. She was prepared to die and said goodbye, sending loving messages to all her friends & asking Dr King to do all he could to cure her sister, not to tell her she was gone for fear it would make her worse. I never had a greater shock. I was so fond of Rosie as everyone is. Poor Mrs Close, it is terrible for her and Mrs Darley. Your papa has had Charlie to come back in time for school on Monday - if it is fine tomorrow and you get this in time, come tomorrow afternoon and go up to Mrs Hudsons for tea. If the weather is not fair tomorrow to come on Monday afternoon, send what clothes are dirty by him and I can have them ready on Tuesday and take them bakck with me on Wednesday. I hope to get away on Wednesday night and go up to breakfast with Mrs Hudson so that Osmond needs to start his hi... to meet the mid day train and no Maud? says - Affie is still here, also Walter and he was going last night, but Affie made such a fuss about it. He is sorry now he waited as it is raining heavily. My love to all, hoping you are feeling well, believe me ever your affectionate mother, Lydia F Bowker..
     Elizabeth Steer Bowker received a letter from Lydia Frances Phillips dated 16 July 1878?. Avoca, July 16: My dear Betha, Charles arrived about half past seven o'clock this morning bringing his knapsack upon his shoulders - he had a good passage. I am sorry to hear you have a sore throat and hope it is better. If it should get very bade send a telegram tomorrow so that I may bring up medicines as it is I have asked your papa for a gargle. D V. I hope to get off tomorrow night and go on by the mid day train on Thursday. Affie, Ada & Walter left last night. I think Affie better though he can't swallow solid food yet. Your papa will see about a cask? and sasy Osmund had better buy if he thinks it sound enough as your papa likes old hay better than new, if it is quite sound and not musty - to buy what he thinks will be sufficient. I have plenty to do this morning so will say goodbye feeling thankful you escaped so easily your fall the other day. It is a warning to you to take more care. I made a pillow cast yesterday after sending your letter and must have them washed this morning. Give Lydia my love and thanks for her nice long letter. My love to you all, Your affectionate Mother L F Bowker, Tell Harold we all liked to read his first letter. You say the bullock weighed 7lbs and a half and the hay is 3 sh. a ton. You mean 7 cwt and a half and £3 a ton..
