Marion Clark

For your interest:
I am directly descended from Esther Hewlett (afterwards, Copley) nee Beuzeville. I have much documentation indicating that she is the author of the book "Historical Tales for Young Protestants". This has been documented in 'Family Notes' by Emma Mary Byles OBE (circa 1935) and is specifically mentioned (and the story of the Roussell's flight to England is reproduced) in Rev. David Carnegie Agnew's book Protestant Exiles from France (1866) Agnew subscribes the authorship of the book to Esther Hewlett.
Your acquisition of this book is the only copy in existence that I know about, and I am wondering whether you would be able to have it copied for me. If that is so I would be absolutely delighted as I am an avid family historian (see - and wonder, of course, what other stories in that book relate to Esther's family in particular. If you can have it copied for me I would be pleased if you could inform me as to how I may pay you.... Credit Card, Bank Draft, or other.
With my kindest regards,
Marion Clark.
Melbourne, Australia.
PS - I know Ralph Byles of South Australia.. a distant cousin of mine.
