27th June 1885
My dearest Julius,
I hope you got on all right with May yesterday, I shall be glad to hear that both my travellers have reached their destinations.
Dear little May! I missed the child dreadfully yesterday; it seems so strange without her, & I think Jack missed her too. This morning he & Kitty had a good three hours in the garden & then were unwilling to come in, & now they have gone out with Phillis, Ethel having a pair of boots on for the first time.
I wrote to Mr Hunt last night & shall post it with this; I think I shall walk as far as Aldington & see whether Miss Savory is at home.
I hope you are enjoying the sea air, dear, & that the change will do you good.
Give my love to Aunt Lizzie & ask her when she & Mr Fellows mean to come & see us.
The moss has not turned up yet, so that I am unable to get on with your boxes.
I don’t think of anything more to write about; so will close. I shall be very glad to get you home again dear, still if you can stop a little longer & would like to, do so, as I think the sea air will do you good.
Goodbye my darling, the chicks would send love if they were here.
With fondest love
I am your loving wife
Eugénie N Sladden
