My dearest Julius,

May has been writing to Auntie Lottie so I will write you a few lines & send her letter in mine.  I hope you were not too tired with your journey yesterday & got to Ash pretty punctually, I shall hope to get a letter from you tomorrow afternoon.

I think May managed to have a tolerably nice birthday, they rather enjoyed going to the rehearsal.  George was a very naughty boy yesterday, he got cross with Arthur & bit his arm very badly right through his sleeve; the skin was broken & bruised.  I gave Master George the slipper to some time & he was in disgrace for some time afterwards.

I called to enquire after Mrs Gepp yesterday, she was not quite so well & looked awfully bad; it appears she has had a miscarriage, so Mrs Savory tells me.  Mr Gepp had a fearful cold today & actually got his brother to read the lessons for him.  Miss Jourdain took a class at the Sunday school this morning, I think she will go on taking one.

I will not write any more now as it is bed time.  Give my love to your Mother, Charlotte & Aunt Susan also to all at Guston.  Hoping soon to hear from you

I am
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden

The children would send love if they were up.
