My darling Mother

Many happy returns of the day, I must try and scribble you off a letter before tonight’s post.

Well isn’t George’s engagement quite the most thrilling event which has happened in the family for ages? I was very surprised at it coming just that particular time, but I was fully expecting that he would get engaged before long. He wrote me such a nice letter to inform me of it. I am most anxious to see Rosie, it will be so nice for me if we take to each other to have somebody practically my age in the family.

I shall be seeing Kath next Wednesday I think, as Miss Hamilton has invited her to come and hear our little end of term function when we all play. I am dying to see her, as of course the engagement happened after I last saw K.

You may expect me home tomorrow week. I will send you a card early next week and let you know what train to expect me by. Ethel lent me some money when I saw her on Sunday so I shan’t want any journey money. Please thank Det for her nice long letter which I was very pleased to get.

Has Baby had her photo taken yet?

Apparently you are rather a society of crocks at home, it is a good thing you have got Miss Det back. I have been a bit of a crock myself with rather a rotten cold but it is better now.

I have no time to write more, I’ve got more work to squash into a week than I usually do in a fortnight and it is rather a problem how it is going to be done.

With much love and best wishes for your birthday.

Your affectionate daughter
Juliet E Sladden
