The Steam Brewery

April 17 1879

My Dearest Wife,

I caught my train easily at Reading, got into the same carriage there as Mr Marsden was travelling in, on his return from his brother’s funeral, and found Ridgeway waiting at the station for me, arrived home by 10.0 p.m. found things all right.  Business has gone on pretty well, we are still a little ahead of last month in our sales.  I enclose Bessie’s letter, don’t forget to write, but plenty of time yet.  Have you dropped a line to Miss Pollard?  There is no news to relate that I can think of.

I hope to hear a good account of you and baby to-morrow’s post.  Don’t write Friday as I think I may probably run up to C. Norton first train Saturday, do some business and start from there to reach Richmond as arranged.  With very best love I am as ever

Yours loving Husband

Julius Sladden

Kiss for Jack.
