Dec 20 1878

My Darling Wife,

I have just come in from a long round with Ridgeway, it was a cold drive but we have done pretty well altogether to-day.  I think you had better come on to Evesham to-morrow leaving C. Norton at 12.10 take a first-class return ticket, I will be at the station with a fly and we can drive back to Honeybourne if we like to go back that way.  I am glad you took baby down to the Bliss’s yesterday, it was very kind of the old gentleman to give you a shawl & the photos and I am sure you will be gratified by their good will.  I hope the breast will soon have done discharging and begin to heal but it is better that the matter should come away.  I hope it will be fine to-morrow for your journey mind and wrap up well.

Give “little Jack” his kiss
And ever believe me

Your loving Husband

Julius Sladden

Excuse a hurried note but I am pressed for time.
