My darling Husband,

Many thanks for your Monday’s letter received this morning, did you write on Sunday? If so, I have not received the letter & I don’t think it can be Ernest’s fault as the papers came all right this morning.

I have just written a line to Edith asking her to send Norah down with Frank, we could manage very well with her & I daresay it would do the child good.  The little ones are invited to Mrs Poole’s tomorrow afternoon, but I thought it was scarcely worth the expense of a fly there & back & saw no other way of getting them up, so I have written to decline.  They were very happy this morning running about the kitchen, helping Fanny & me do the work & especially pleased to see us give Bruce a bath, Fanny washed him & I helped to keep him still & he was a very good dog over it.

I am glad you seem to have had tolerable weather & hope you feel the better for your change, I am longing for tomorrow to get you home again my darling.  I think I have missed you more than ever.  Jack & May send you a kiss, Baby says “Papa gone” in rather a doleful tone, so I suppose she will be glad to see you again.  I have got a slight ear-ache & my throat feels rather lumpy, I suppose I have caught a slight cold.  

I must close now as I am off to Mrs Savory’s to dinner, I hope I shall get there without rain, it is very showery today.  With much love my darling,

Your affect. wife

Eugénie N Sladden
