My dear Mother

Thank you for your letter.  Miss Hasler and Kathleen have just started to Evesham, it was so wet that we could not go last Saturday though I think it is going to rain now, it has been very wet ever since you have been away and the roads are dreadfully muddy.  The ottoman gets on rather slowly, the stockings are not finished yet.  Miss Edmonds sent Arthur’s stockings yesterday.  I suppose she is at Richmond now.  I brought the ferns and geraniums into the house yesterday, also my lily.  Miss Hasler and we three girls went to church this morning, there were only three besides us.  I expect Freddy will get a great many presents tomorrow.  The garden looks very untidy now because all the leaves are coming off the trees.  We have sent the flannel petticoats off to Kilburn.  The October “Our Work” has not been sent yet, they are going to enquire for it today.  Mr Palliser has taken the ducks to Pandy today, he has gone instead of Father.  We get about one egg a day now, the fowls are all right again now, they like Thorley’s food very much.

With much love to all and yourself.  I remain

Your loving daughter

Ethel N Sladden
