1st July 1908

My dear little Juliet,

I was pleased to get your little letter the other day & will enclose a short one with Ethel’s; it is nearly lunch time, so I shall have to hurry.

I am glad your Flower Show was such a success & that you enjoyed it so much.

Ethel will tell you about our going to Grindelwald Glacier yesterday, you would have been amused to see Mother climbing up, holding on to the guide with one hand & having a long alpen stock in the other to stick into the ground, it was quite exciting & very interesting going up there.

You would be pleased with the lovely wild flowers here, they grow in such quantities on the mountains & such a number of different kinds, the ground is quite carpeted with them in places.  You would also like to see the lovely shops in the town with beautiful things carved in wood & ivory, also lovely jewellery shops.  

I am wondering how Aunt Lottie & Norah are getting on at Champéry; I had a post card from her just before she left Folkestone, but she never gave me any address, so I cannot write to her.

I expect you are pleased to have Uncle George & Aunt Lizzie at Badsey, I hope you take great care of Dada & don’t let him miss me more than you can help.

By the time you get this letter our time here will be getting short, I hope to get home Wednesday next week.  I hope Scot is keeping all right, no one has mentioned him since I came away.  There is a dear little dog here called Lily that you would like, she is very small & most playful.  This afternoon we are going to drive up to some nice woods & walk about there.

With very much love & many kisses dear

I am
Your loving mother

Eugénie N Sladden
