My dear Kathleen,

I am just writing a few lines to let you know that Auntie Polly will be pleased to see you & Ethel for the exact, only you must send her a line that she may know when to expect you, I suppose it will be either next Sunday or the following one.

We had a lovely passage the other day & the weather has been beautiful; we are going to stop a night at Rouen & shall cross back to England next Wednesday.

Grandpa does not seem very well, I think he has got more feeble since I saw him last.

Uncle Fred was in Paris last week & we lunched with him on Wednesday; I was so pleased to see him & he was looking so well.  Yesterday Auntie & I had an expedition to the Bon Marché & did a little shopping there.  They are getting on with the Exhibition buildings, it will be a huge place.

I hope there are no more scarlatina cases & that the girl who has it is getting on well.

I heard from May yesterday they seem getting on all right at home.

With much love to you & Ethel

I am, in haste, 
your loving mother

Eugénie N Sladden
