My dear little Juliet,

I am so sorry to hear that you have another feverish cold & are isolated for fear of mumps, I do hope it may not be the latter as besides the pain, you would have such a dull time of it; I shall be anxious to hear how you are & am enclosing a post-card for you to send.  I will stamp it if possible, but I have no half-penny stamp & it is Tuesday & at present everyone is out.  Father has gone to meet Aunt Lottie, she will have had a very hot journey & will be dying for some tea; Aunt Lizzie left us this morning.  I was wondering whether you would get much of that bad storm last Wednesday at Highgate, it seems to have been terrible in the City & in south London; here we are escaping all the storms so far & are still wanting rain badly.

I expect you were sorry to hear about the cow; they had an awful job to bury her, the ground was so hard & being Whitsuntide, nobody wanted to work; however they buried her this morning & Brailsford put a few flowers from your garden in the ground with her, as Ethel thought you would like him to.

We had May Capon & her husband & mother in law to lunch & tea yesterday, the former looks very well & they seem to like Colwall & are hoping to find a house there.  Enid & Betty are going to Wales on Thursday for a week, their Aunt Anne is coming for them in the motor-car.

I hope you will soon be all right again & able to go to Sydenham on Saturday, I know you will enjoy that.

With very much love & kisses from us all

I am
Your loving mother

Eugénie N Sladden
