My dearest Husband,

I was very pleased to have a few lines from you this morning & hear all was well at home.  I am going over to Surbiton in time for lunch & must write you a few lines before doing my packing; Fred has ordered a fly for me, he thought it would be more comfortable for me to drive all the way & of course if he is kind enough to pay for the fly, it is the nicest way of going.  I do not feel very much better for my change yet, some days I am pretty well & some not; yesterday I was in a good deal of pain all day; very likely I may feel the benefit of the change more when I get home again.  I have been fairly fortunate in the weather, there has been a good deal of rain, but mostly at night, the mornings are generally bright & I have been able to get out every day.  Polly collapsed with headache on Saturday & was in bed most of yesterday, she seems pretty well again this morning.  Fred is very full of council matters just now, they have elections in every ward next Thursday; he took me over the Town Hall on Saturday, it is a nice building & beautifully fitted up.  Has the tea & coffee arrived from Ridgeway’s I ordered it the day after I got here.  If I go to town from Surbiton I will try & get a drugget for the dining-room.

Harry has given me such a nice little rug for my room, isn’t kind of him.  He seems to me to have improved since I was last here & to have lost some of that sharpness of manner which I noticed last time.  I must go & pack now, so with much love to all, especially to your own dear self

Believe me
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
