My dear Peter -
That horrid red boy has kept us here all this time!! and now Jimmie's brother wants to come for a fortnight!! Will you be at Poulda until the end of September. I do so want to come, even if it is only for a week.
Jimmie is going to the Court about the red boy and his Mama, again tomorrow, I dont know if that will be the end. I hope so for it is an awful nuisance! Ethel is going to England this week and then the great event is to come off on her return, when my brother-in-law is gone.
There is another great piece of matrimonial news - The eldest Miss Kinsella is engaged to Mr. Robinson, do you know him? I believe he is a son of Sir Hercules Robinson, the governor of Melbourne. He is an artist. There is the greatest excitement in the Kinsella camp about it. I suppose the others will go off at once, now!
With much affection from us all,
Ethel Whibley (1861-1920), née Philip, JW's sister-in-law [more]. The 'great event' was probably her wedding to Charles Whibley (1859-1930), writer and journalist [more]. In fact, it did not take place until July 1895.
9. Mr. Robinson
Hercules Arthur Temple Robinson (1866-1937), was a soldier, not an artist, and was not betrothed to Miss Kinsella, as far as is known.
10. Sir Hercules Robinson
Sir Hercules George Robert Robinson (1824-1897), civil servant and colonial governor.
