My dearest Husband,

I was very glad to get your letter this morning & must now scribble a few lines that Mrs Ridgeway will post for me in Evesham.  She kindly came down this afternoon & took me for a drive, it was such a beautiful day that I enjoyed being out.  The babies have both been out, & Edith tells me Jack was very merry out of doors, he is a dear good boy as usual.

Mrs Gill & I had our tea together like two old maids yesterday, & I am to go in & see her tomorrow evening.  I get on very well all day without you, darling, but I don’t like the evenings & going up to bed by myself.

I had a long letter from Emma Burridge today which you must see when you come home; how glad I shall be to welcome you my darling!  I also had an answer from Broadwood’s; they can only advise me to keep the piano in a room which is always occupied.

Give my love to all at Ash, especially dear old Grandmama if you see her.

God bless you my darling, with fondest love 

Believe me
Your affect. wife

Eugénie N Sladden

I am going to undress little Jack, as it is Ellen’s evening for church.
