13th January 1885
My dearest Julius,
I received your Sunday evening’s letter last evening just after my note to you had gone to the post.
Thanking you for the paper giving me the children’s heights. I am rather glad to see that Jack & May have not grown quite as much as the previous year, it is quite enough for their strength. Give May a kiss for me & tell her I was pleased with her little letter; fancy their going up to St Lawrence’s, I suppose that was before you went home.
I have been having my hair cut & dressed this morning, it was coming out rather, such a dapper little hair-dresser!
I have just been writing a note to Dr Coleman to ask him to let you have his account, I hope he won't be too extravagant in his charges, but I am rather afraid, he saw me a good many times.
Have you had any snow at home, there was a little here yesterday & it is just beginning again, I hope we shan’t get snowed up on Saturday, as I really want to get home to all of you; you have not mentioned my babies the last day or two, are they all right? I wonder if Baby will remember me, kiss them both for me.
Give my love to dear Jack & May & with much for yourself, my darling,
Your loving wife
Eugénie N Sladden
