26th Oct 1904
My dearest Julius,
I will write a few lines to enclose this letter which came this morning & which may require an answer. I was glad to get your letter this afternoon & to hear that you are going to Aunt Lizzie’s, as you say, Folkestone must be somewhat depressing just now, & I hope the latter part of your visit will be rather brighter than your stay there.
Brailsford put the little pigs out in the orchard today for an hour or two, he is making a little trough for them, as he thinks they want a little food now. He has just finished picking the fruit & Ethel & I got off the pears on the middle tree in the yard this morning.
Juliet sends her love & a kiss, as I write this, I am making her write from dictation on her slate, so that she may try & get into ordinary writing.
Much love dear, from
Your loving wife
Eugénie N Sladden
