Jan 18/80

My Dearest Wife,

I must write at once in time for this evening’s post.  I have not yet been down to see Grandmamma for they thought she and Aunt Susan both would be tired with seeing several Sunday visitors, so I have sent word that I should go to-morrow morning.

Austen Gardener wants Charlotte to go with me and dine off a turkey on Tuesday.  Mother went to Church this morning, she seems very bonnie.

I am looking forward to receiving a letter from you to-morrow morning and hope to hear a good account of you all, give the babies a good kiss each from Papa, I hope little Jack will be very nice with his Mamma while I am away.  Charlotte sends her love and thanks for the tie which she thinks very pretty.

I bought a book slide and presented it jointly with Charlotte to Mother.  I also brought down a hare.

The dentist was out on Saturday, I went too late for that day, I must go on my return for curiously enough the stopping of the other tooth went on Friday evening.  Uncle George has been to tea and stayed some time.  Now I must say good night.  God bless you my darling, I should so like to give you a good hug.  With love from all and heaps from myself

Believe me ever
Your affect Husband

Julius Sladden
