My Dearest Wife,

I must write from here or shall not be time for post.  There is a capital show of roses.

Fred & Polly came to dine last night, I went round by Richmond to see your father who is not quite himself so would not join the party.  I was glad to get your letter this morning and to find you were getting on all right, kiss the babies for me, I hope they will be good.  To-morrow morning I expect to go on to Eynsford and stop there the night.  I have bought the cheap dinner service etc for you to-day as advertised.

Charlotte joined me here at the show with Miss Harrison, and they have just gone to walk in the grounds.  I must now go on to Paddington to arrange about a private compartment for Monday and then get on to Surbiton.  I have ordered a coat and want to get it tried on Monday morning.  To-day I went to Drury Lane with Charlie and looked over their establishment, however I must reserve full details of my doings for my return.  I am enjoying a little change of air and wish you were here too.  With best love to you my little wife

Believe me ever

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
