Treasure Chest Continues - The Last Letter from Marie

This is the final letter to be posted and transcribed in the series of letters by Marie Brennar to William and Hannah Ward of Nottingham on the adoption of her son, Alexander Ernest Hope.  

This last letter was not actually penned by Marie but it still relates to the adoption, and is, by far, the most puzzling…who the heck is Mr. Kid?

Adoption by Mr. Kid?, letter dated 6 May 1881 (or 1880)
