My dearest Julius,

I really will sit down in good time this morning & write to you, for I feel that I have treated you rather shabbily.  

We are going to lunch with Polly today, & I think, dine at the Butlers.

I have just received your letter & enclosure thank you for it, dear. I rather wonder there was no letter for me from Lizzie.  Before I forget, will you ask Annie to put Baby’s [? ? ] into your bag, also a ….


I shall have to get Fanny to lend me some money [?] you came, as I should not have enough.  Our journey to Surbiton, refreshments & all come to less than the tickets would have been to Paddington, so it was an economy.

Baby has not looked quite himself since we have been here, but I think he has picked up again yesterday & today, I seem to have nothing to do with him here except just dressing him in the morning, I feel quite a swell.  [?] is looking forward to seeing Uncle Julius.

We are going to the theatre on Thursday, it’s rather wicked, but I don’t suppose we should have another chance.

I must leave off now, as it is time to get my things on.

With fondest love
I remain
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
