My Dearest Wife,  

I received your letter of 21st inst. on my return from Ardrishaig yesterday and that of 22nd this morning.

So Miss Pollard is really engaged to be married give her my congratulations and say that I hope the “fearful example” at Badsey won’t frighten her.  I am glad you went to the Savorys on Monday.  You must have been brave to squash green fly on the roses, I think it was the thought of the cup that enabled you to do it.  We have just returned from Edinburgh, Lizzie & Charlotte & I, it is a very fine city and I consider Princes’ St unsurpassed by any I ever saw, we had a pleasant day and it was beautifully fine, Charlotte hunted up the Hargreaves who used to live at Ash, Mr H. has a church in Edinburgh.  I am sorry Miss Hougham cannot come to us.  My cold is much better and my appetite famous, I think you will say I have actually fattened!  I am glad to have good accounts of you and the chicks and although I have enjoyed my change I am looking forward to seeing my dear little wife and the pets soon.  Tomorrow I shall probably make some short excursion perhaps up the Gare Loch as I leave at night by 9.15 express.  I shall try and come down to Badsey to lunch on Saturday as I shall not want to do much after my journey and then I can begin fresh on Monday.  Kiss the pets for me and tell them Papa is coming.  Now I will conclude & hoping soon to take you, darling, in my arms, with fondest love

I am ever
Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden

All here send love
