My dearest Husband,

I was rather disappointed at getting no letter from you today, but Fanny tells me on a post-card that you have gone on to Ash, so I will send a few lines up to post today that you may get it tomorrow.

It was nice & bright this morning & we went to Church, but it has come on wet again this afternoon.  Mrs Savory is giving a Xmas tree to the Aldington children on Friday & May is asked to it, of course she is delighted & I am very pleased, as I think she was feeling rather out of it, hearing of Jack’s & Kitty’s dissipations.

The Haynes’ have lost their baby, it died on Wednesday & Mr [?] had to take the chair at the rifle corps dinner.  I think Miss Savory will have to go home on Saturday, shall you come back on that day do you think?  I don’t want to hurry you, but I feel afraid to be alone; however of course I may have had to send for Mrs Johnson by that time.

How do you find your Mother & Charlotte?  Pretty well I hope, give my love to them.  Did you have that tooth out the other day? & if not hadn’t you better have it out on your way home?

It is awfully dull today without you & the children; I think May finds her exercises rather flat just now, & will be glad to have you home to make some fun.  

I hope you are enjoying your change dear, & feel the better for it. 

Goodbye darling, with fond love

Believe me

Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
