My darling Husband,

No letter from you has come yet, but I hope I may receive one today with good news from home & meanwhile will write before starting out on my travels for the day, as when once I start out I don’t often get back to the Pension before bed-time.  Yesterday, I lunched with Fannie, then I called on May who was out, so I went in next door & found Mrs Parmly at home & had quite a long chat with her.  I then called on Madam Allen, the poor old lady is very much broken & very weak; she seemed pleased to see me & I have promised to take her for a drive next week.  I then dined with Eugéne Jouanne & his wife, of course he was most hospitable, providing all sorts of good things & wanting me to eat twice as much as I really required.

I go to Bourg on Monday & hope to be back here Wednesday morning Joe will look out the trains for me.

Father is looking very well & not much older than he did two years ago; poor Fannie is not at all well & is dreading this operation, I hope she may get through it all right.  I hear Fanny & Charlie are coming to Paris the end of the month, I am afraid I shall just miss them, had I known they were coming, I might have delayed my journey for a week.  Now I must say goodbye; with fond love, my darling, hoping you are all well.

I am,
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden

I will write to Charlotte in a day or two.
