The Steam Brewery

Nov 15 1878

My dearest Wife,

I have been quite busy to-day brewing and putting things straight in the brewery, Ridgeway assisting.  The “cow gown” is a perfect sight I assure you.  It has rained more or less all day, unfortunate for the opening day of the chimes.  I have heard them but otherwise witnessed none of the ceremony.

Rawlinson comes down first train tomorrow and then I hope the purchase will be completed I shall be glad to have done with it.

I hope you have been getting on well in my absence and feeling pretty well.  I shall be so glad to come home tomorrow at 4 p.m. and on Monday I shall feel more satisfied when I know Mrs Lake will be on the spot to look after my “little wife”.  I shall be glad to receive my letter in the morning as it seems a long time since I was at C Norton!  Now I must close. Good night, little woman.

Ever your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
