I think the 'Dear L' is actually the start of 'Dear Sented', and then it's been changed to 'To Sented'.

If I have tracked backwards correctly on the Bayliss line, Katherine's grandfather was called Henry.  Could he be Sented?

I'll try the maternal line and see what comes up there.

Agree with this.

On 1901 is Katherine's father a widower - so who/when is she writing to?

My guess is that the writer of the letter is 10-12 years old?

Good handwriting and spelling, but less confident about punctuation.  And the writing slopes a bit.

So date of writing 1902 onwards?

It's puzzling me why it's a weekly epistle and whose daughter she is, if it's addressed to (Mr) Sented.
Surely the daughter of widowed William Bayliss as Chempat says

I was going to suggest that the address at top is where she is staying so Sented could be another person staying there

Do you need help with triangulating DNA matches

One tip I have ..try putting Manchester in location for shared matches you can look at the ones which match your mother her half sister and you .

Also add potential father ...and use colour code dots for all matches which.share with the match.you already have add different colour for all those that.have Manchester locations.
You may start to see a surname coming up in shared trees

Also I see that the address on the 1901 Census for the family is 2 Churchill Street!!

I think it may be a joke letter from Katherine to her father.  Perhaps he smoked a pipe?  Perhaps she went to bed late, but blamed him?

Was The New Series a magazine?
