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.
