My Darling Wife,

This has been such a bright day that I hope you have been able to carry out your intention of going to church, I have thought of you this afternoon as being there.  I have been down to Badsey this morning and shall be able to give you a better description of the house it is really a very nice place, I shall bring a pattern of paper for the drawing room for your approval as Fowler can then order it and be getting on.  I hope you may be able to come over in about a week as there are one or two things I want you to see about.  Mr Byrd said to-day that they would be able to get out he thought quite early in January.  We have ben getting in from the station 93 sacks of barley to-day to save paying cartage as our horse was doing nothing.

The accountant having finished the books has gone round with Mr Ridgeway to Hampton to see what they can do in getting orders you see he knows the people.

I hope to find to-morrow that you have lost the pain in the breast I sincerely hope you will escape having that one bad also.

Now I must finish as I have a job to do, and hope to be with you not many hours after this reaches.

With much love, and a kiss for baby I am

Your loving husband

Julius Sladden
