My darling Husband,

I have just received your hurried line & was glad to hear all were well at home.  You really must try & come up on Saturday, I am so anxious that you should have a good rest, & don’t like being lazy myself while you are working so hard.  I saw Fanny yesterday & am going to lunch there today; she wants us to go there for a few days & says Charlie will give you a day’s shooting probably on Wednesday, so mind & bring your gun up.

Miss Robinson is to be buried tomorrow & Polly is going up to stay with Miss Fanny Robinson during the funeral, so I think of going up to see Martha.

Kitty has not quite got back her appetite & is still rather quiet but very good, she sends Papa a kiss & says she is a good girl.  Sarah dresses her in the morning & she doesn’t make any fuss about going to her.

The weather hasn’t been much since I came up, today seems rather brighter & I hope it may improve by the time you get here.  Give all my dear ones kisses for me, I hope they are good & happy & I hope the servants take care of you.

I think I must enclose my promised letter to May, so I will leave off. With fondest love hoping to see you on Saturday

I remain
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden

P.S. Polly sends her love & hopes you will be able to come on Saturday.
