As promised I went to the chief Registrar at Bradford on Thursday last the 27th July and had a search made for your birth entry in their books. They found it from particulars I was able to give them. It is as follows.
Hester Jane Baldwin Born November 21 1868 at No. 45 Bramley Street, Horton District, Bradford Parish- Father name Bentley Baldwin . Mother Mary Ann Baldwin formerly Boulger. I saw this entry and copied it on July 27 / 05
This is the House where I went times without number to see your Aunt Harriet who there lived with your parents & I took her from there to get Married on Sept 21st 1867. Our eldest son was born Oct 8th 1868 so you see he is just 6 weeks older than you & if his mother had been living she would have known your age to a week. as we were frequent visitors to each other and the ages of babies are frequent points of conversation at such visits.
Hoping all is well that this clearing up of your delemma is satisfactory. I to hear from you again. I am your affectionate Uncle Bethel.
PS. Send a picture P. C. to one of my girls Annie or Effie.
