My dearest Mother

Many thanks for your letter. I'm awfully sorry to hear that you have been in bed, I had no idea you were. Hurry up and get quite all right again, won't you?

Yes, it is disappointing about. Cyril. I call it thoroughly mean of them not to give him his captaincy after all that.

I am going over to Hampstead this afternoon to call on Lily Messenger and the Bowdens. It is such a lovely day I felt I must go out somewhere.

I suppose you have George at home today for his farewell visit. His holiday seems to have gone very quickly, doesn't it?

We have been having lovely weather but it is very cold in the mornings and evenings. Otherwise it is spring weather like April or May.

I am going next Saturday to see The Yeoman of the Guard; the D'Oyly Carte are at the Marlborough Theatre. Several people went yesterday to see The Mikado, but I went to that this time last year when they were on.

There is a new girl coming in a few days and another one at half term, so I think I shall get my coveted single room, probably on Tuesday if this girl turns up all right. Of course moving my things will be rather a bother but it is worth it ten times over to have a room to oneself.

I suppose now you've heard from Cyril you will be having to say goodbye to Mary and Baby quite soon; how you will miss them.

I'm glad the concert was a success; how much was made by it?

We are getting on for half-term now; it was four weeks last Thursday since the beginning of term. We go home on the 6th April.

With much love to all.

Your affectionate daughter
Juliet E Sladden
