LETTER FROM JOHN JOSEPH FULLER 1922    

Drimoleague,
co. Cork
Ireland
Dec.10th 1922

Dear Madame

With reference to your note of Sept. 28th. 1922 I want to inform you that as far as I know i have no relationship with the parties mentioned in your letter. I had an Uncle Ralph Fuller who emigrated to Melbourne in the sixties but have never heard from him and I had no personal knowledge of him as this was a long time previous to my birth. There is however a great similarity in the family names. I have two brothers one Dr. Ralph Fuller practicing in Cardiff and Edward who is farming at home. My fathers name was Joseph and he had also a brother (Edward) who I believe went to Canada.

My family have been connected with Dunnmanway Co. Cork for over 100 years. I have also a nephew Dr. Thomas Joseph Fuller practicing in Shefield his father was my elder brother who practiced as a solicitor in Skibbereen Co. Cork he is the only married brother. I was in S. Africa as a surgeon to the South African field force 1900-1902 and on one occasion I met the New Zealand contingent and there was a member of this force called Fuller, I did not at the time inquire.

With reference to latter part of your letter I must assure you instead of taking a liberty I am Quite pleased to hear of anyone with your family name and trust to hear from you again.

I remain
Yours Sincerely
John Joseph Fuller
