My darling Husband,

I was glad to get your nice long letter this morning.  Fancy your Mother not being downstairs yet, she must indeed have been poorly, has she had Mr Haynes.

I have just received Phyllis’ character & have written to engage her for the 1st October, I hope the other one will also be satisfactory.

We had a pleasant afternoon at Sandwich yesterday, encountered Fanny Hayward & your uncle Tom, the former was on her way to stay at Goss Hall.  Today we are going to Deal to dine at Uncle George’s, I am going to take May, so that she may see Aunt Susan & Miss Hougham.  She was a very good girl in my absence yesterday & is getting more friendly with her cousins.  She sends you a kiss & says “May been a good girl”, & tell Jack & Kitty she will be glad to see them again.

I go on to Ramsgate on Monday, if I go to Guston it will be from there, but I shall see how it fits in.  I wish you would ask Haynes if they want my “lying-in“ ticket for any one, if not, Mrs Brown may as well have it as the time is getting on, but I can’t send it till I get home as it is locked up in my table drawer, so I shan’t answer her note till you have asked Haynes.  How is poor Mrs Savory? & have you seen anything of the Hunts?  By the bye did you ever send those roses to Mrs Worsfield?  I meant to have asked Charlotte to remind you before I left home.

I must go & dress myself & May so will conclude, kiss my darlings for me, tell them Mamma is so glad they are good, has Baby got any more teeth?  My love to Mrs Sladden & Charlotte, tell the former she must make haste & get well & with fond love to you dearest

Believe me
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
