My darling Husband,

I should have written by early post today but was late in getting up having a head-ache; it is all right again now & was I expect brought on by my going up with Fanny & the elder children to see the Circus & Pantomime at Covent Garden yesterday afternoon & though the theatre was not hot, it was rather noisy.

I was pleased to get your letter last night, thanks for the Post office order, I think Fanny & Charlie will probably see us off from Paddington on Saturday, I shall be very pleased dear to get back to you & the children & I think it is quite time Kitty got home, she is indulging in crying now when she has to leave me, I suppose it is because she has been away from me so long, I hope she will be good at the party tonight; she sends Papa a kiss.

I heard from Miss Savory this morning enclosing a letter she had written for Jack, give him my love & thanks for it.

How did the rifle-corps dinner go off? Was Mr Hartland present?  I see his meeting comes off next week.

Now my darling, with fond love & kisses to all of you

Believe me

Your affect’ate wife

Eugénie N Sladden
