My dearest Husband,    

I was pleased to receive your letter on Monday & will now send you a few lines.  It has turned much colder the last day or two & there has been a little snow today; I am glad I packed up your warm vest as I think you will very likely require it.  The children are all pretty well except Jack who is  looking rather seedy, I expect he wants his holidays, I gave him a little Cod liver oil this morning & shall do so for a little while.

You would have been amused to see Miss Jourdain & me last night tucking in to oysters for supper! the fact is, I had ordered a score from Procter last week forgetting that you would be away so of course I had to take them.  Jack, May & Kathleen had some spoiling which they much enjoyed.  I have bought a small Dutch cheese, I saw one at Cox’s the other day, the first I ever saw in Evesham.

Phillis had the basket of apples to give to the postman, so I hope they will arrive all right.

Jack has come home early being half-holiday & is doing his fret-work, he sends his love to you as do the other children also.  I have no news to give you so will close, with love to all at Ash & especially to you, my darling

I remain 
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
