My dear Eugénie,
Many thanks for your letter & Hubert’s flannel which arrived at the same time.
We left Truro Tuesday afternoon & arrived here Wednesday morning. Nurse has just left for her holiday & we have taken one for a fortnight. I don’t suppose the children will be very good with her for some days. We had a very pleasant visit at Evelyn’s. We went to Land’s End & made several other excursions in the neighbourhood.
We shall be here some days & I must run down to Sandwich in a few days to see Grandmother. We shall probably go last of all to Fanny towards the end of the month & leave on the 30th. We found Harold & Baby quite well on our arrival. Baby has grown quite fat.
We heard from Galatz today & everything seems to be alright, so I hope we shall not have much trouble in getting straight when we get back.
I hope your children are well & also Mrs Sladden to whom please remember me kindly.
With much love to yourself and Julius
Yr affte Brother
