My darling Husband,

I have had every minute so taken up today that I have not found time to write before post, but hope you may get this letter tomorrow afternoon. Fanny & I went to church this morning, then made a call & did some shopping.  Papa & Mrs Leach came to lunch, the former was not very well, so we drove him back to Richmond & called at Polly’s, but she was out; we are to lunch there tomorrow.

I came down into the drawing-room intending to write to you before dinner, but the children were all down & clamouring for music, so I found it was no good attempting it.  Now, Susie Butler, who dined here, is teaching Fanny [?] work, so I have a few minutes to myself.  Fanny seems so very much better & more cheerful, she sends her love to you.  

Dear Baby has had one of his sleepy days, his cold seems rather better, he went out for a nice walk with all the children this afternoon.

I was very glad to get your letter this morning, & hope you are not too dull; I shall be glad to see you on Wednesday, my darling.

I am very sleepy so will not write more, with best love I am

Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
