My dearest Husband,

I must write you just a line, as I suppose it will be no good writing tomorrow.  I do so long to see you home again, it seems an immense time since you left, but I hope the change will have done you a lot of good.

Jack says “Come toon, Papa” so I suppose he also will give you a welcome.  He & May were very pleased with a white dog which Florence made for them today.  You seem to have enjoyed your trip down the Clyde, indeed I should enjoy going to all these places with you.

Mrs Savory has asked Florence & me to go & spend the afternoon with her tomorrow.  I have got the children’s bath home & Hunt has done it so badly, we ought just as well have bought some white paint & done it ourselves in that fashion; it will want doing again in no time.

I suppose you are in Edinburgh today, you will not have had much rest during your trip, but I expect the going about suits you, I am glad to hear you have found your appetite.

I don’t feel in a mood for writing & have nothing to say, so will close with fondest love & many kisses

Believe me
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden

P.S. Love to all.
