Nov 26 1878

My Dearest Wife,

I was glad to have a telegram from Fred this morning to say that Polly would be with you this evening for I feel that you will not be at all lonely now.  Mr Ridgeway has not yet turned up but I daresay he will appear before tomorrow sometime, anyway I think I shall be well able to get to Chipping Norton at 4 p.m. and I shall be so glad to come and see you and “little Jack” too.

Last night I wrote a few lines to my mother and perhaps tonight I may write a little account of this place to your father as he seemed to wish it, I have also posted a letter to Fanny to say that I left you comfortable yesterday.

I have had the office tidied up today and can make it nice and warm with the gas stove.  I do hope my love you are going on nicely it seems ever so long since I saw you.  I do not think of much to write about so goodnight with a kiss for yourself and baby Jack.

Ever believe me

Your loving husband

Julius Sladden

Give my love to Polly.
