4 West Hill Terrace, St Leonards on Sea

6 Aug 1880

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

Believe me

Yr affte Brother
