My darling Husband,

I think by your letter received this morning that you are not getting on quite satisfactorily at home, so I shall try & go home on Thursday if possible, should I come on [?] on Wednesday however, which is possible, I should have to wait a few days, as it would not do for me to travel while I am so.  You had better send me £2.10.00 as I might have to pay for Kitty & I hate to be at my last penny when I am travelling & of course I must tip the two servants here pretty well after all the trouble I have given.

Charlie with his usual generosity would not allow me to pay Mrs Johnson.  I return your Mother’s letter, thank you for sending it, when I wrote I said I should be pleased to have the petticoat.  I expect we shall have to go to Westbourne Park or Paddington as I don’t think the Reading trains fit, however I must study Bradshaw & see what we can do.  Fanny does not much like my going before Saturday, but I think I can arrange the journey, & if I am very tired must rest when I get home.

I am sorry you have a cold dear, & hope you will take care of yourself.  I want to catch the early post, so must close, with fond love to you & the dear little ones

Believe me 
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden

P.S.  Isn’t the junior partner back yet?  I think it’s about time he came home to mash.
