My darling Husband,

My first letter this year is written to you, I hope you got down all right yesterday & were not too tired after what must have been rather a tedious journey.  I was glad to have good news of the children this morning, was not dear little May delighted to see you? & has my pet Baby grown much? kiss them both for me.  I hear the children just coming downstairs to go for their morning walk, Jack is quite happy with them now, but keeps of talking of going to see May.

I went over to see Fanny yesterday afternoon, she was in the drawing-room, but on the sofa, & the previous day she had not left her room.

Today we are going to choose Polly’s jacket & tomorrow the piano.

I forgot to remind you about the children’s Savings Bank books, it is time for them to be sent up.  Ask Mr Hunt to come in & see me on Wednesday evening that we may arrange about the school feast.

I must write a few lines to Miss Gardner, so with much love

Believe me
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden

P.S. Tell Fanny the beds need to be altered, as I shall keep Jack in my room, at any rate for the present.
