Dear Julius

Thank you so much for the card and good wishes which you sent me; it is always so pleasant to be remembered by one’s friends. I was sorry to hear from Charlotte that Mrs Sladden had not been well, & hope you found her better at home which, I suppose, you spend at Ash as usual.
We have had no winter as yet, it is quite warm, more like spring than mid-winter.  I am hoping to get some skating before the end of the month but it certainly does not look like it at present.  We have Fred Robinson staying with us unexpectedly on Saturday so we are very glad to have him and only wish that Polly could have come too.

With best wishes for the New Year
believe me
Yours sincerely
Eugénie N. Mourilyan
