My dearest Julius,

We only just caught the train at Reading yesterday & I had no time to enquire whether it would be best to go to Kingston or Surbiton, consequently we had three changes, with half an hour to wait at each & did not reach Surbiton till half-past eight, when it appears we might as well have got to Kingston by seven o’clock; I did not write the post-card as it was so late.

May was rather tired, but very good & jolly; I was glad I took some biscuits for her, as there were no refreshment rooms anywhere, & we were both very hungry by the time we got here.

I am wondering how you got on this morning & whether Jack got off in proper time for school, give him my love & I hope he is a good boy & will soon make some friends at school.

May & I are off to Mr Adams so I must not write more, I hope I may be able to give you a good report from him.   

My best love to all the little ones, how did Ada manage with Baby last night?

Much love my darling from

Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
