Emma Earp (nee Findlay)

Emma Leonora Earp nee Findlay (1868 - 1954) was a daughter of Katie Schreiner (Schreiner’s oldest sister) and John Findlay and thus one of Schreiner’s nieces. Schreiner’s extant letters to Emma are scattered from the late 1880s around the time of Emma’s marriage to Charles Earp, until 1919 and the death of their son Errol from pneumonia at the end of the First World War. The letters read very much as kindly letters from an aunt to her niece and chiefly concern family news.
