My Dearest Wife,

I came down here with George to arrange about the journey on Monday.

Mother seems very bonny only a little tired.  Please ask Ridgeway to order a fly that will open, if the weather is fine, to be at Honeybourne at 5.21 P.M., they have a board & cushions all complete so there will be nothing to take from our house, the luggage is rather heavy for a fly so ask Ridgeway to arrange to have the old grey in the light float at Honeybourne, Charley might go if the men are busy.

I am just off to Richmond to see them there, Polly & Fred are going to dine at Surbiton to-night I believe.  Fanny was pretty well – and Charley improving, the children all right.

I hope you are getting on all right little woman and that the children are jolly, kiss them for me.  Now I must conclude or I shall lose my train.  All send love, and with much from myself I remain

Your loving husband

Julius Sladden

In great haste.
