Title Helen F. Warner Correspondence
Scope & Content As a newly-wed recently transplanted to Florida, Helen Warner regularly wrote home to her mother, Mrs. Jane Mary Ann Haig, who lived in Great Marlow, Buckinghamshire, England. The letters describe both personal matters and items of larger interest, such as the establishment of an orange grove and the settling and development of Narcoossee. Helen's pregnancy and the birth of her baby, Rubie, figure strongly in the personal news. This record group includes a transcription of the letters.
