My dearest Julius,

We were very pleased to get your wire on Saturday evening, announcing the safe arrival of the travellers & this afternoon I have had a letter from May enclosed in one from Kathleen.  Brailsford was going up to Evesham Saturday evening & offered to call & see if there were any letters at the post-office, about half-past eight he brought us back one from May & also a whole heap of diary, so Ethel & I were able to read it aloud to each other in peace, instead of hurrying over it in the morning; it took us about two hours to read it.

We were a very quiet & dull little party yesterday & shall be very glad to welcome you & May home on Wednesday, which is the day she says we must expect you both.  Arthur writes that he hopes to come down on Saturday afternoon & stay till Sunday evening.  I also heard from Cyril, the place on his leg is almost well & he hopes to be able to play football again soon.   Chapman put up the casement curtains in the drawing room & they look very nice, we have also got the cornice & curtains up at the other window; I think they will bring the cushion tomorrow.

Judy & I walked to Wickhamford through a good deal of wind yesterday; the Mylnes were in church, he is rather a tall man, & looks quite young; there were two ladies in the pew, so I don’t know which was Mrs Mylne.  Ethel’s pupil was a bit obstreperous this morning, the novelty is wearing off I suppose.

Give my love to Charlotte, will she be coming down to us before long?  I hope the journey up to London did not tire George too much & that he is keeping well, my love to him & Lizzie & also to all at Delph House.  How are Aunt George & Aunt Susan?

With much to you, dear

I am
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden

P.S.  I have had one answer to the ads. For laundry maid and have committed to the girl.
