Letter from Joe to Rex on the death of Peter Haycraft Dibdin

Frederick (called Jo or Fritz) was a surveyor. After the first World War he went with Christine [61] to New Orleans in the U.S.A. He married there and had one daughter Marian. She has great musical talent and a God-given contralto voice which could have taken her to the top of the tree. Tragically, after Jos death both she and her mother went into some sort of breakdown cum mental illness. Although they have been out of the hospital for some years now, they do not seem to have made a full recovery. As far as we can make out they are living in some sort of hostel where they are looked after and have an eye kept on them. [62]
