My darling Husband,

I am going to try & write you a line while the children are downstairs, so you must not expect anything very connected; Edith is going up to Evesham so she can post my letter.  Jack & May came down as usual this morning & were very good while I had prayers; of course they had to have some of Papa’ Mama’s egg, Papa not being at home.  Jack & May send dear Papa a kiss.  I hope dear you are having tolerable weather & enjoying yourself, I am rather hoping to get a letter from you this afternoon, Ernest promised to send down any that there might be.  I expect you have gone to Westgate today & wish I were there with you.  

Mrs Savory came in after church & had a little chat, if it is fine tomorrow we are going to have the pony & go for a drive.  Edith & Ellen go to the Worcester Exhibition on Tuesday, I hope they will have it fine.

I miss you very much darling & shall be very glad when Wednesday comes, but I hope you are enjoying the change & feeling the better for it.  Mr Macdonagh is a white haired man with a very long nose, I have not seen the wife & daughter to speak to yet.

Now my dear Julius, with very much love & a lot of kisses

Believe me
Your loving wife

Eugénie Narcisse Sladden

P.S. Love to Mrs Sladden & Charlotte.  Baby has got a rash round her mouth which does not improve her personal appearance, teeth I suppose.
