My Dearest Wife,

I was very glad to receive your letter this morning.  

As it seemed quite fine after breakfast I sent the trap up to Evesham the pony being wanted and went over to the shooting, via Wickhamford, taking George Pethard with me from the Sandys Arms, however the rain soon sent us home and I came back to Badsey to get a change of clothes and have some lunch, afterwards I had May & baby down for a little while before starting to walk up here.  They are both very good and baby I hear slept right through till 7 a.m. this morning.  May sends a kiss & a love for Mamma & Jack.  I went down to Aldington last evening Mrs Savory goes on pretty well.  I expect you will be enjoying the dance this evening, I shall be glad to get home by a good fire as the weather is vile.

With much love
Believe me ever
Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden

In great haste
