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
