My dearest Husband,

I was glad to receive your letter yesterday & to find you had got safe to Ash & found them all well.

We have the ground covered with snow again today, but the sun melts it in places & it is not very cold.  The chicks have gone out this afternoon, they are all very well & Baby gave me a kiss for Papa this morning.  May is asking what you are bringing her from the Christmas tree.  

It does seem so quiet in the house without you & my two chatter-boxes; I have not had Fanny’s promised long letter yet.  I am still keeping about but am far from grand, I get so much pain continually & do not have very good nights, being generally awake an hour or two, if not more.  Tell me in your next when you think of coming home; I think that haunch must be cooked next Sunday & hope you will be back to partake of it.

I have no news & must leave off now as I promised Miss Wagstaff to go down to the school & call over the registers, she was in last night about some cooking materials.

Goodbye dear, give my love to all at Ash & with much for yourself darling, believe me

Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
