My darling Husband,

I was very pleased to get your letter this morning & hear what a nice day’s shooting you had, I am sure you must have enjoyed it.  I spent the evening at the Vicarage again yesterday, Mr Gepp wanted me to play one or two accompaniments at the concert, so I went to a practice & then had supper there. The frost has disappeared, today it is damp & rather cold.  Arthur’s cold is better but George’s is rather bad & Kathleen is beginning to cough today.  The ringworm is no worse, indeed I think the little boys are better; I had [?] down yesterday to cut their hair quite short, he cut it all off the bad places & Ethel does look such a sight & says her head feels rather cold.  I have found the Evesham Standard & will send it to Glasgow when I can get a half-penny stamp.  Fred Robinson sent Jack a nice book this morning & Mary very kindly sent me a nice blotting book.  I have finished the mince meat & nearly done the plum puddings. May & Kitty are doing their afternoon lessons with me as I write this, they send their love & a kiss to Father, & so would the others if they were downstairs; I think they will all be very glad to get you home again.

I hope you found your Mother & Charlotte pretty well, give my love to them, & with much for yourself, darling, believe me

Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
