My dearest Husband,

I had your post-card this morning & shall hope to get a letter at seven o’clock or tomorrow morning, you are a dear good boy to write so regularly.

I drove over to Richmond with Fanny this morning & saw dear little Kit, she was in bed for her morning nap, but not asleep, she has rather a cold & looks heavy-eyed & I asked Polly to give her a dose.  [?] is ill with an attack somewhat similar to Lily’s, so Polly has got her turn of nursing this time.

Kitty sent you a kiss & I was to say she was very happy & good; she wanted to know if you were coming to fetch us home in a carriage.  I hope the children’s colds are better, give them all kisses from Mamma.

I wonder how you got on at the party, was the Lady Mayoress very splendid in her attire?  Fanny has given me some very pretty dark blue stuff for my dress & her dress-maker is making it.

I don’t think of any further news to give you, so with fond love hoping you are keeping well dear, I am

Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
