The Steam Brewery

April 6th 1879

My Dearest Wife,

I have just walked up to the office but find no letter from you so conclude you were not in time to catch post.  I hope you got up all right to Surbiton by 4 p.m. and that Master Jack behaved well, I shall look for a few lines to-morrow morning’s post.  Annie’s mother got down all right last evening, and Ridgeway came and dined as arranged.

The house seems so quiet and altogether rather “Mimsy” so I am not sorry to spend Sunday out, the weather is showery with wind, so I am glad you travelled before it came on.  I got the little bulbs in all right yesterday.  Now I must close & start for church; with best love to you and a kiss for baby

I am as ever

Your very affect Husband

Julius Sladden

Hope you found Fanny well give my love to her & Charlie.

I trust my memory is correct regarding the address.
