Marshgate House

18th Sept 1885

My dear Julius,

Just a line to tell you I got here safe, & was not too tired by my journey.  I had to wait about half an hour at Paddington & found Fred, Mella & Harry waiting for me at Richmond station.

Dear little May looks well & has a little more colour, but I don’t think her so very much grown at which I am rather glad.  Polly is going with us this morning to Mr Adams’ & I hope we may have a satisfactory report.  Charlotte had left the guinea for the fee with Polly, so I shall have plenty of money.

I enclose the key of my drawer in case you should want the wine keys which I forgot to give you.  

I hope the dear chicks are all well, kiss them for me.  May says she wants to see Papa most when she gets home.  I must go & get ready for the train; I hope you will have a fine day for your shooting.

With fond love, dearest

Your most affect.ate wife

Eugénie N Sladden

P.S.  Try & manage for Phillis to go to the practice on Monday
