My dearest Husband,

You will be expecting to hear how we are getting on so I will answer your letter this afternoon.  We had a beautiful day yesterday, sunny & warm so in the morning we took the tram to Babbacombe & walked about there & sat a little while on a sunny sheltered seat & trammed back in time for lunch.  I had a rest & then we went for another little walk after an early tea.  This morning was not so pleasant but we walked right down to the Harbour Pier & then a little way up the town & back along the sea front, being out quite an hour & a half, & only sitting down once or twice for a minute or two, as it was too cold to sit long.  I was rather tired this afternoon so Arthur has gone off by himself, probably to Paignton & I had a good rest & have been working & reading.  

Mary is coming on Monday for a few days, so I hope the young people will have a nice time together.  Arthur calls himself better & no doubt he is, but I shall be glad to see him with a little more spirit, he is still rather listless & has not too good an appetite.  Tomorrow we are going to lunch at Ipplepen with Tom & Phyliss, we shall have to take a train about 1 o’clock to Newton Abbott & Tom will meet us there.  I think I may have enough money to pay my bill on Wednesday, but will you please send me a little during the week.  Thank you very much for offering to pay some of May’s expenses, I thought I would make an effort to get her here.

My love to the girl, tell Ethel “Boots” is still here & enquired after her yesterday.  They have laid on the electric light since last year.

Much love to you dear from
Your loving wife

Eugénie N Sladden
