My Dearest Wife,

Lizzie & Charlotte have gone to church and left George & myself to write our letters, we all went this morning to service and the church is a very nice one.  We have arranged a trip to the isle of Arran tomorrow by steamer and if the day is fine I expect it will be thoroughly enjoyable and George is also able to get away.  The Kemps have said they will be glad to see me so I intend to take the trip, which appears to be a splendid one, to Ardrishaig on Tuesday, stay the night there and return the next day.  I do not know whether we shall return to-morrow in time for me to post a letter, but I will write before I go to bed so that the letter may be posted early next day, I shall try and let you hear every day but if no letter comes you will know that it is on account of my being on the move.  I am looking forward to hear of you and my wee pets to-morrow I expect you have had them with you a good deal to-day does Jack want Papa to come back?  I think the change will do me a lot of good, my cold is better and a good long night’s rest took off the fatigue of the journey.  They have comfortable rooms here and when the drawing room is furnished will be quite complete.  Please give all the chicks a good kiss for me and tell Jack and May that Papa hopes they will be good while he is away.  Are the roses coming on much?  Tell me how you are getting on darling when you write and with much love believe me ever

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
