My darling Julius,

I have just come in from a drive with Mrs Savory & must write you a line before post-time.  I was very glad to get your letter yesterday & am pleased to find you did not have a solitary journey up to town.

I do hope you are not having too much rain, here it was fine yesterday & this morning & the farmers have been hard at work carrying, but there was a heavy shower at three o’clock & it rains again now.

The children are quite well & send you kisses, May says she will be glad when Papa comes home.

I am going to dine at Aldington tomorrow, Mrs Savory expects her two sisters today to stay with her, they have been on a walking tour.

I called on Mrs Macdonogh this morning, I find she is related to some people named Carden whom we used to know in Paris years ago, Fanny would remember them I daresay.  Did you accomplish your letter to George yesterday?  I wrote a good long epistle to Lizzie, so they will get news of us any way.  I have not seen anything of Mr Ridgeway yet, he was away yesterday but is back again today, so I hope all is going right in your absence.

Give my love to Mrs Sladden & Charlotte & with fondest love to yourself my own darling

I am 
Your loving wife

Eugénie Narcisse Sladden
