5 Avenue d’Eglan

22nd October 1893

My dearest Husband,

I was very pleased to receive your letter & hear you were all well.  I am so glad you are at the Nash today, it will be a little change for you & prevent your missing me so much, but I expect the children don’t much like their Sunday without us both.  

I got back all right from Bourg yesterday morning & had a carriage to myself the greater part of the way.  Yesterday I called to see the Irvines & Mme Allen who all seemed pleased to see me & in the evening Eugéne Jouanne & his wife dined at Joe’s.  This morning I have been to service with Father & had lunch here & when I have finished my letter I am going to afternoon service at the American Church which I have never been to yet.

How very kind Aunt George is, I have written to thank her.  Perhaps you had better use the £5 to pay Isaac Morris if you can put another five to it.  I hope to have a few pounds left when I come home, but of course paying for my room runs away with some money & the journey by Calais comes to more than by Dieppe.  I thought of getting a carpet for the spare room with my savings, but perhaps I had better wait till next year.

Give my love to all the dear children, I shall cross back to England on Tuesday & hope to be with Fanny in the evening, I don’t think it is worth while stopping at Folkestone as Charlotte is evidently in the very midst of her move.  No time for more now or I shall be late for service, with fond love to you dear

I remain
Your loving wife
Eugénie N Sladden
