My dearest Husband,
We got here all right at three o’clock & found Mary, Aunt & Sarah at the station. Kitty was a very good girl, but very quiet, she seemed rather tired, so I made her lie up a little while, & after we left Reading she went fast asleep on my lap. I found the blinds all down here, Miss Robinson died yesterday, Polly seems to think she has left a good deal of her property to charities, but I suppose they don’t quite know yet.
Nobody asked me for any ticket for Kitty, we had the honour of travelling in the same train as the Bishop of Oxford from that town, I believe.
I hope my dear chickies are quite well & happy, give them all a good kiss for me. I hope you got some sport today. I must leave off now, so with fond love
Your loving wife
Eugénie N Sladden
