My dear Kathleen,

We have been thinking a great deal about you today & wondering how you were getting on; I am glad to think that your worst day is over, you must be tired tonight after seven hours of it!

Thank you for the note enclosed in Ethel’s letter, she tells me you went to Clapham Junction so you would not see anything of the dreadful accident on the Great Western.

We expect Uncle & Auntie tomorrow evening, in the afternoon we are going to Mrs Haynes to tea to say goodbye to Carrie , she is going away so soon, the 1st of July that she will have no time for farewell calls.  Yet another house in Wickhamford is going to be done up, & the people who have taken it, some relations of the [? ?]  at Worcester, & acquaintances of the Wildings, have taken a cottage in Badsey till they can get into the house, we must call on them shortly.

Mrs Price brought her baby up to see Juliet the other day; you would have laughed to see them together, they soon made friends, & Juliet took little Gwendolen’s hand & solemnly marched her round & round the dining room table & when she lent her a doll, said “hold it nicely, don’t let it tumble.”

May took Baba to church on Sunday & afterwards they had tea at the Vicarage.  The poor little woman has rather a bad cold today.

Father sends his love, he says this is an extra letter & he will write as usual to Clewer later on in the week.

Give my love to Miss Pollard & with much for yourself & best wishes

I am
your loving mother

Eugénie N Sladden

P.S.  I hope you will see Jack while you are in town.
