My darling Husband,

You will expect a few lines tomorrow, so I have asked for a pen & ink at Mrs Lovejoy’s.  Polly & I came up this morning & have been to Peter Robinson’s where I invested in a mantle, I hope you will approve of it. We have been lunching here & I expect we shall have a drive presently.

Baby was not quite comfortable last evening, but was quickly asleep when I left this morning; the nurse offered to bath him, so I don’t seem to have had anything to do for him.  I don’t feel very bright myself, I brought up all my dinner last night, but hope I shall feel better by Saturday.

I hope you caught your train all right yesterday, & were not too tired.

Now my darling, goodbye, with fondest love

I remain
Your affect wife

Eugénie N Sladden
