Hamswell House, Bath

9 July

My dear Eugénie,

Florence has just got your letter.  We cannot very well come on Monday as we must all go to Bath together from here & we have already made arrangements.  We start [?] with Harold & Baby off to St Leonards – come on to you ourselves with Hubert by the 3.10 train from Bath getting to Evesham at 5.47pm.  You are right about the train.  Our Bradshaw had a misprint on the time.

Don’t let us interfere with your attendance at the Flower show.  I suppose Julius exhibits.  We can look after ourselves.  Will turn up at Seward House.

I am glad Mr Sladden & Charlotte are with you.  I did not see the latter last time I was in England.

You must not trouble about Hubert.  He can sleep in our room, as he does here.

We intend staying with you till Saturday and then we go to George Gardiner at Box.

Love to you all

In haste

Yr affte Brother
