The Mother and the Maiden Aunt
Letters of Eva and Alice Greene 1909-1912
by John E. Barham

Eva’s letters provide a vivid insight into her busy life. She was frequently so busy that letters were written over several days, and usually included the time of day when each piece was written. It is the freshness of her descriptions that makes her letters so fascinating. While Alice’s letters, besides frequent references to Eva’s children, contained news about her own activities and those of her three sisters and two brothers and her lover, Betty Molteno.

It seems probable that these and other letters were kept at Harston House, near Cambridge, until the death of Sir Graham Greene, Alice’s eldest brother, in 1950. After the house was cleared the letters eventually found their way to a cousin and then onto John, who has been able to edit and publish them. Alice’s letters were in a ring binder while Eva’s were all in their original envelopes, which enabled John to trace the delivery of so many of them.
