Letters to Evelyn Hall
File · 1897
Part of Hall family fonds

File of letters, mainly from Dell Grafton, who was a school friend of Evelyn Hall’s from Havergal College, Toronto. The letters were written between 1900 and 1905 and describe Dell Grafton’s social life, clothes, parties and boyfriends and were written from Dundas, Ontario (her home town), Vancouver, British Columbia, and from various hotels in Maine, where she spent her summers with her family. Adeline’s father was James Grafton, a dry goods merchant in Dundas. Her mother had died and her relationship with her stepmother was not good. The last letter from Adeline was written on board the RMS Caronia in October 1905, when she was on her way to school in England.

The other letter was from Anna Corbett of Brampton.
