Susan Rock Letter with Reflections on Miles Rock’s Death

“The letter no 1 of 1901 is the last I shall ever possess of your father’s - none came last week and none this week so perhaps he was ill some time and I was not there to minister to him - no one of his own to close his eyes in that long sleep.”
