My darling Husband,

I was so pleased to receive your nice cheerful letter this morning giving me good news of all at home & especially of the little ones, I am so glad they keep well & are good.  It is very kind of Mrs Savory to have them to tea, they will enjoy it, I daresay.  Tell Ellen from me, that if it turns cold again Jack had better have on his winter frocks.

We are to dine at Fanny’s this evening, Papa’s tomorrow & Fred is going to get tickets for the theatre on Wednesday.

I will send you a line by the early post tomorrow to say where you are to meet us, as I expect we shall dine in town, & any way you would not have time to come down to Richmond first.

I called at Walter’s this morning but Miss Swifte was out, so I have not seen the young woman yet; she is not much in favour here I can see, but more so at Surbiton, which was what I expected.

Have you spoken to John Byrd about the roof of the house, it ought to be seen to before the winter, they are in the same state here, water coming in in several places.

I wrote to Lizzie yesterday.  I have no more news, so with very much love & kisses to you & the dear babies

I remain
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
