        Crystal, Not sure if this will help but a few years ago I looked up all the St HelenaSolomons’in the India Office library. They are as shown below.  The wording is exactly as written on the card and I have no further information.

         

        You should also check out this website

         

        website.lineone.net/~sthelena/saulsolomon.htm

         

        There was also a book published called ‘Saul Solomon - The Member for Capetown  not sure if there is any relation. The book is available on www.abebooks.com for under $10

         

        Hope this helps
