My dearest Husband,

Many thanks for your letter & enclosure, I am thinking of walking up as far as the Post Office to cash it, my first walk out of doors.  I feel pretty well now, though I am easily tired, & hope by Saturday week to be equal to the journey home with Kitty, I shall then get a week of comparative quiet at home to get straight & stronger before another washing week.

I am glad the children were able to go to the Christmas tree & hope they did not increase their colds, tell Mr Hunt from me that it is very kind of him to be so anxious for their enjoyment.

Fanny enjoyed her party last night, I think she is better the last few days, though she has scarcely given Dr Priestley’s treatment a fair trial yet, one of his orders are for her to lay up an hour in the morning & one in the afternoon & she certainly has not done that yet.  She sends her love & thanks for the Stout & hopes you will excuse her writing as she is so busy.  It is Fanny’s day & I must go & change my dress in case any callers come.

Kiss my darlings for me & with much love to you, my darling

I remain

Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
