File of two holograph letters (and one transcript) from Edmund Fox, Burton-on-Trent [England], to "my dear Cousin" [John Cusack]. Enclosing photograph of one page of The Clare Champion [22 September 1938] with feature article "Cusack's Memory", and at length discussing various points of family history; including family names Flannery, Doolin, Cusack (unsure of its antiquity), and place names (Kilnaboy). Recalling meeting his father [Michael Cusack] in 1883. Some expressions of regret that the old times have gone; "níl na daoine comh nadú[rtha] mar bhí siad fadó...I fear the old jovial spirit has perished"; referring repeatedly to a friend nick-named "Cú Uladh". (Writer of transcript unknown.)
Cusack, Michael, 1847-1906
