My darling Husband,

We got down very comfortably at six o’clock but too late for post.  May was a very good girl & no trouble, I laid her up on the seat at Oxford & she slept for an hour, so was quite ready for her dinner & looked about her more in the second train, having a little got over her first astonishment.  No one asked any inconvenient questions as to her age.  She seems inclined to be friendly with her cousins, I have just put her to bed in my big bed which she much approved of.

Fanny looks very well, I just saw the Robinsons at the station, they had come over for Mary & were going back by the train I got out of.

I saw lots of hop-gardens, some of them looked very well, but some dreadfully knocked about by the gale, I saw one or two where all the poles seemed broken about two feet from the ground.  

My love to all at home, kiss my dear little ones, I hope Baby is better.

I found a letter from Papa awaiting me, he seems well.

Now with fond love

Believe me
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
