Your affectionate and loving sister

edited by Nigel Surry


Letters from the mid-eighteenth century exchanged between Elizabeth Postlethwaite  at Denton and her younger sister Barbara who was married to the Rector of Dersingham,  Revd Samuel Kerrich. Elizabeth did not enjoy good health and the distance between Denton and Dersingham made visits nearly impossible, so letters had to serve as their means of communication – delightful chatty letters carrying news of births and deaths, food and fashions, marriages and miscarriages.
