16th September 1883
My darling Husband,
I must send you a line before post-time in answer to your nice long letter received this morning. Charlie came down yesterday & will stop till they all go up together on Thursday. We go on to Ramsgate tomorrow morning, I hope May will soon get used to her cousins there, she is better now & only has an occasionally cry when she is with me & thinks she has got to go away.
We have had lovely weather & I have enjoyed being here, but shall be very glad to get home to my dear ones. I think however it has done May good, I wish you could have seen the dinner she eat today.
Charlie is waiting to post my letter, so with fond love
Your loving wife
