Further comments

Addresses may be in the wrong order - also she does not mention her present address (see letters to her). I could not read the full address which starts "Glen".
Dora marries a widower, so some of the children may be his husband's children.
She does not receive a certificate of naturalisation - she is asked for information on her late husband's nationality (he is naturalised), and a further letter explains that because of her late husband's naturalisation she too is naturalised.
She does not know the name of her husband's ship.
