Three of them to Mrs. Lionel Lucas (Helen, nee Goldsmid), and one to "Emma". Two sweet, charming letters congratulating Helen on her upcoming marriage (in 1855), declaring that if he was not married he would look for a girl just like Helen. Ten years later, her husband having died (in 1862), he thanks her for the gift of some flowers, and makes some flattering remarks about her. In the third letter, his wife, Anne, writes to Helen in 1862, probably on the death Mr. Lucas, sympathizing for her "terrible loss". Helen Goldsmid Lucas was very active in philanthropy, especially in Jewish causes. The fourth letter is from Bryan Procter to "Emma", from the content clearly a youngster, dated 1864, very sweet, full of small talk, flattery, teasing and encouragement. Emma was likely Helen's daughter, as Procter refers to "your uncle Sir Francis" -- Sir Francis Henry Goldsmid was Helen Lucas' brother. Four letters, 10 pp., includes one envelope. All are Very Good to Fine.
