My dearest Husband,

I was very pleased to receive your letter & Kathleen’s yesterday evening & will now write you a few lines that you may know when to expect me on Tuesday.  I think of taking the 4.45 from Paddington, as I want before that to go to Baker’s & chose some suits for the two boys; I can buy them out of my savings & I know they are getting very shabby.  If you could manage just to measure them & send their height to me on a post card, so that I should receive it on Tuesday morning, it would help me considerably in my choice, but never mind if you have not time.

Polly, Fred & I spent the evening at the Simpsons yesterday, they seem pleasant sort of people & it was a little change from the ordinary routine.  In the afternoon I went on the river with the girls, they were glad to have me, as Harry had gone out to tennis; the latter is working up for his examination next month, but I fancy they are all pretty doubtful about his passing.

I went to the Academy on Friday with Fanny, I did not like it as well as last year’s; we called to see Dr Parmely also, he is looking better.  I must send a few lines in answer to Kathleen’s letter so will close.  With much love to you & all

Believe me
Your loving wife
Eugénie N Sladden
