My dearest Eugénie,

I was very glad to have your letter this morning.

I enclose letters received from Charlotte & William Hayward, the latter relative to furnishing, I think we shall do well to take his advice respecting carpets at any-rate, bring his letter with you on account of the addresses contained therein.

Please get Fred to furnish you with the name of the people he recommends for glass & china.

I telegraphed to Charlotte Hayward to send the C.S. ticket by return of post so I expect to receive it just before starting 7.50A.M.  I have also written to tell her that a previous engagement to go to Richmond will prevent us from accepting her invitation, you see, darling, we can have the time there a little more to ourselves, had it been practicable I should have been glad for you to have made the acquaintance of C.H. both she & her brother William are great friends of mine.

I am so glad you liked your rose, it was a pretty specimen though not very large.

And now good-bye, dearest till to-morrow when we shall meet all right I hope.

Ever believe me 
Your own affectionate

Julius Sladden

I fear I shall be unable to manage next Sunday but we will talk it over when we meet.
