My dearest Husband,

I will write a few lines this evening & let Jack post the letter at Evesham so that you may get it before leaving Ash.  I have not heard from you since Friday morning, probably there is a letter at the Evesham post-office, as Jack went to buy me some stamps yesterday, & never thought to enquire for letters.  I hope you have been enjoying this little rest dear, we shall all be very thankful to have you home again, today has been horrid without you.  There was quite a fall of snow here Friday night & yesterday was very miserable, a sort of rain or sleet falling most of the morning; today it was freezing again, so you can imagine our roads are very nice.

The children’s colds are rather troublesome, Jack’s & May’s seemed so heavy after church this morning that I kept them all in the rest of the day.  The two little boys seem decidedly better, but Ethel’s head is dreadful & she has several places on her body as well, I am afraid we shall have a job with her.  I saw Mrs Savory for a few minutes this morning, but otherwise have seen no one since Thursday evening.  I must try & write some letters this evening so will close. 

With love to all at Ash & much darling for yourself from me & the chicks, 

Believe me 
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
