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 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
In great haste.
