      Friday 12th (some time before July 1908)

      My darling Son
      I promised I would give you the?family tree so here goes as far as I?know. My father Late JJ Hooper was the
      eldest son of a Dr who wrote
      a medical book that at one time no one
      could do without - he was a widower. Son & Daughter.
      My step brother John fell in the Indian
      Mutiny. He was in the 6th Dragoon Guards.
      My step sister Emma Hooper married a
      Dr of Divinity named Carl Kruger
      a Russian gentleman. Their 3 Daughters
      are married. One to an Indian Nabob.
      My mothers maiden name was Hordern
      She was an orphan though highly educated
      in the Convent in France for 13 years.
      There were 16 children. My mother died
      of Consumption aged 45. The eldest
      Brother James took his life in
      New Zealand through a bad woman.
      My second brother Walter(?) was killed & eaten
      by the natives at Soloman
      Islands on his 16th birthday and my younger
      brother Charles was killed in
      NZ through the result of a fall.
      My only living brother Frank is in
      Townsville North Queensland there
      are 4 living sisters Anni (Annis?) who is married
      to the (son of then )[pencilled in at an a««««g/e].Reslut(?) Earl of Limirick?and may some day be an Earl he
      is honourable the HN Pery (moro/noro/horo?) - Aunt
      Kobriak (?) is Mrs Darcy(?) NZ Her Grand

      came out here when Aunt Mini(?) Grace
      was 2 years old. Grandpa Peters was half
      Spanish. His wife pure English.
      Aunt Mini Grimes married George
      Underwood Grimes Grandson of the
      Late Cap. G. Underwood & was left
      very rich. Aunt Mini fell off
      South Head [Sydney]& was killed. Her share
      of money £50,000 - fell to George
      & Percy Grimes & Percy

      Many of my cousins are Dr. There?is a family name Dr Dempsey.
      Cousins but I never found them a?thought I had. several cousins in?Deniliquin N.S.W. My first?Cousin William Hooper died 3?years ago, all his sons are in?Banks there & here. That is all?I can remember.

      on 5 or 6th why dear man you
      altered the date . Your Dad is
      so worried with that Keith(?)
      he will not work & last week was sitting
      in the park at 12 at night when an
      old man charged him with
      robbery & thanks to me he got
      out of it. I had to bale him
      out & poor Dad has to pay
      £5-3 for the solicitor
      just for the families sake
      & keep it out of the
      paper. I waste days walking
      all over the place & the fellow would
      not say thank you - Aunt
