My dearest Husband,

I found your letter waiting me when I arrived here this morning & am glad to hear you are all well.  I do hope dear, you will not get quite   ?    up with all the work you will have to do in Mr Collier’s absence, it is really too much for you, has he been getting more depressed again?

I quite thought you understood that I was coming here & not to Fanny’s; Charlie is better but still very weak & I hear he & Fanny are starting tomorrow for Southsea, so Mary & I are going over this afternoon to see them.  I was pleased to see Jack’s letter & will write to him this week, indeed I intended to have done so.  Joe & Fannie & Mr Whitney saw me off at the station in Paris last night, I travelled with rather a pleasant Irish girl who had come all the way from Florence & was going on to Belfast; we had a swell on, the day before having been rough, so I was ill & consequently did not get much sleep.  I find Polly in a considerable muddle, the top two rooms are being painted & papered & also the outside of the house, & they are doing some house-cleaning as well.  Fred has just purchased the house & the two adjoining ones.  I think I had better go home next Tuesday afternoon, unless you want me sooner, in which case write & let me know. I am feeling rather dazed & stupid so will not write any more. With fond love to you & all the dear chicks

I remain
Your loving wife
Eugénie N Sladden
