My darling Husband,

I will write you a few lines this morning as I shall not have time after dinner.  We are going to Sandwich, having been prevented by the weather yesterday; today it is lovely & quite warm we have been sitting on the sands all the morning, May making a large castle with Frank; she actually went up to the nursery by herself this morning.  I had to give her some medicine this morning, & she seems rather weak & perspires so at night; I am giving her a little port wine.

I suppose George is back with you now, have you had some more shooting?  I hope Mrs Sladden is improving & that the little ones are well, kiss the darlings for me, I do long to see them again & you too, darling.  May is to have her ride in the donkey chaise this afternoon, so I hope that will help to keep her good in my absence.

I have nothing further to write about so with fondest love

Believe me
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden

Love to Mrs Sladden & Charlotte, how does the latter get on with the servants?
