3rd March 1904

My dearest Husband,

I was pleased to receive your letter this morning & will write you a few lines before we start for Richmond where Fanny & I are going to lunch.

We also had snow yesterday morning which turned to rain later, but it is fine again this morning.  I am going to Holloway College in time for lunch on Saturday. I am not sure yet what train I shall travel by on Monday, but will let you know; I may stop at Oxford on my way if I leave Egham early enough.  I shall have to go to Birmingham by the 9 o’clock train on Tuesday as the meeting is at 11.30; I will write to Mrs Knipe today & arrange about meeting her.  Fanny wants you to send her some more claret, I am sending the order to the office on a post-card.

Yesterday afternoon we went to a Lent working party at the house of Lily’s mother-in-law; Mrs Harper seems pleasant, but I can imagine that Lily may find herself rather too near occasionally.  Gwen & Charlie dined here last night, the latter had been to a big Free Mason dinner on Tuesday & Frank also came up from Farringdon for it.  May is home again & seems to have enjoyed her stay at Frank’s.

Give my love to Ethel, George & Juliet & with much to yourself, dear

Believe me always
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
