14th June 1908

My dearest Husband,

I was glad to receive your letter this morning giving me all the house news & now that I have heard a little about our plans will send you on a few addresses, so that you may know where to write to.  

We go to Paris tomorrow & stop one night at the Hôtel Terminus, St Lazare station.  On Tuesday we go on as far as Geneva & stop one night, the address there would be “Poste Restante”, as they have not decided on any hotel.  Next we go on to Parc Hotel, Lausanne Duchy, where we expect to stay five days & from there to Interlaken, Hôtel Beau Site; that is as far as I know at present.  It was very windy here last night, & we all began to think about a rough passage across, it still blows this morning, however I hope it may moderate before tomorrow morning, neither Aunt nor Mrs Simpson are any better sailors than I am. 

I hope Frank had it fine for a drive on Saturday, that seems to do him good & they ought to try & have a few drives at home when they get back & certainly they ought to have separate beds.  Lizzie quite agrees with me in that.

How does Norah like the idea of her trip to Switzerland?  I hope it will do her good.

I am sorry to hear about poor Pethard, I should fancy he will scarcely live through the summer.

I had a tiresome journey yesterday, three changes & did not arrive here till about half past six, we were turned out at Polegate & had to wait there some time.

I will put in a few lines for Juliet, with much love to you & all

I am
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
