My dear Husband,
Thanks for your post-card received this morning. I got down here yesterday afternoon, Florence coming with me as far as Waterloo as she was going to Wimbledon. I have just been writing to May at Naples I see the Orantes got to Gibraltar yesterday. Fanny sends her love & will be pleased to see you on Saturday, there is a train some time after two o’clock that you ought to catch, but have something at Waterloo while you are waiting as you would not be here till about three, rather late for lunch. Florence will come down to Badsey with us on Tuesday, I said I would let her know what train we meant to take. I am glad you are having a more lively visit than usual, how do you like the new house?
I have only had one letter from home, I expect Ethel has been busy, she & Juliet will be left alone today.
George had supper with us on Monday, Florence thought him a fine, handsome young fellow. Did you know that he got stuck in the electric train the first day of his exam, & had some trouble to get there in time, fortunately he had allowed plenty of time. We are going to see Evelyn this morning & I must get ready, so with love to you & all at Deal, hoping to see you on Saturday
Your loving wife
