- ―Jane Beckett to Cutler Beckett
When Cutler Beckett ran away to London because of his huge argument with his father, Jane gave him a small amount of money. She and Cutler wrote to each other several times, and he planned on inviting her to leave their family and live with him once he found a permanent position. However, Cutler was stationed in Nippon, and he could not ask her to make such a journey. Cutler wanted her to move to his new home in Calabar once he was stationed there, but unfortunately, she died from a fever beforehand.
