My dearest Husband,

I was very pleased to receive your letter this morning, telling me that both you & the dear children were quite well.  We have just come back from London, where I have been shopping, I have invested in a jacket which I hope you will like, it was only three guineas, so, as instead of getting some cloth for Jack, I bought a dear little jacket which was rather more than a pound, I think he will look very nice in it, dear little man.  How is he?  And my sweet little Baby, is she all right? Give them plenty of kisses from Mamma.  

Papa looked in yesterday morning & seemed very well, his dinner comes off next Tuesday, so I don’t know if you will be up in time; you must come on Wednesday, as we think of going to the theatre that day.  We went to Surbiton yesterday, saw Fanny who seemed pretty well, & a lot of Butlers & Lovejoys.

I wonder if you are out shooting today, not if it is as wet as it is here.  I hope you are keeping well, dear & the children also, I should like to give you all a good hug.  Fred is waiting to post your letter, so I must close. Polly sends love, & with much from myself, dearest

Believe me
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
