Glencraig . Craigavad . Co. Down . Ulster  25th April 1938
The Viscountess Craigavon has received Mr. Boyd's letter of the 29th instant and notes that he cannot get two doors already made the required size for the Corner Wardrobe and that he will definitely get old wood and make up the doors.  If he can guarantee that it will be the same colour as all the other old furniture in the room she will get him to go ahead with it, but not just at the moment because she has heard of one Corner Cupboard that might be a possibility if it was altered.  When she has seen this she will write to him further and in any case will get him to alter the Cupboard to her requirements if she buys.  She will, therefore, write again in the course of a few days.
Mr. John Boyd, 19 Cameron Street, Botanic Avenue, Belfast
23rd May 1938
The Viscountess Craigavon writes to tell Mr. Boyd that she has decided to utilise an old Corner China Cupboard that she already has for the Corner Wardrobe in the Dressing Room where she needed one, and, therefore, will not require him to make one up for her in old wood.  She, however, will keep his name and address and if at any time she wants any repairs done she hopes that he will do them for her.

a letter from William Conor (artist), 1 Wellington Place, Belfast 21st September 1935
to Mrs. & Dr. Foley, Woodview, Durrow, Leix, I.F.S.
Dear Mrs. Foley, Your sister told me that you and your husband would be pleased to see some of my crayon drawings and advised me to send you a few.  So I am sending enclosed here-with a number of my best and most recent efforts.  If there are any of these drawings that you and the Dr. would like to possess I should be very pleased to accept 5 guineas each.  Although I ask from 10 to 8 here, but being a friend of the Nolan family, and knowing that they would be appreciated I should feel amply rewarded.  I am inclined to agree with what your sister selected, and they were "Bringing home the turf" and "Gimme Hoult"  These drawings are only temporary mounted, I like wide mounts, say 3 top & sides, 4 bottom - I hope you and the Dr. will be interested, and with kind regards. Yours sincerely, William Conor  P.S. Forgot to place this letter in parcel.

Dear Ms. Robinson, Further to your enquiry re the Christopher Street hoard I can give you some details from our files though the find was made some time before I joined the Museum.  The discovery took place in July 1969 when some old houses had been demolished.  A very large number of sovereigns and half-sovereigns were found - first by children.  When the news broke there was indeed a gold rush and many coins were bought off children at prices well below their value.  The police managed to recover only four coins.  These were the subject of an Inquest which declared them to be Treasure Trove.  Basically this means they become part of the national collections.  There were two men who had these four coins and they were rewarded with the full market value of the coins at that time.  The coins are now here in the Ulster Museum.  Whether the remaining hundreds of coins have now been sold to dealers or are still knocking around in Belfast is hard to say.  One hears rumours of the existence of small groups of them but nothing is ever definite.  I doubt if we will see any more of them.  It was suggested at the time that two money lenders had lived in the house and that the cache belonged to them.  Even if you could prove the hoard was your uncle's this would not benefit you when the coins have disappeared.  The matter was thoroughly investigated at the time by the police.  Reports of the find can be found in the Belfast Telegraph for 30/31 July and 17 December 1969 as well as the News Letter for 30/31 July and 18 December 1969.  You can see these in the Central Library in Belfast.
I trust this is of use to you.  Yours faithfully Dr. J. D. Bateson  -  Numismatics
