Four letters from Ella Coltman to Ida Darwin. One of the letters was sent in April 1898 expressing sympathy for the death of Ida's sister-in-law Evelyn Mary Farrer née Spring-Rice (1862-1898). The remaining three were sent in August and December 1910 commenting first on news of the engagement of Ida's daughter Nora to Alan Noel Barlow, and in December on the inadvisability of Ida's son Erasmus meeting Celia Newbolt following his 'rejection' by her.
