Correspondents include a cousin Mrs. James Walker, Robert Bell (including one letter discussing the clothes necessary for John to start his medical practice, 1866), Bell’s sister Mary, a relative Dr. W. R. Malloch, step-sister Eliza Wilkie, members of the Notman family, Bell’s step-brother Andrew Bell living at Pointe Fortune, Quebec, Bell’s mother, step-brother William, and a cousin George Bell.
