Aug 26/82

Dearest Eugénie,

Just a line to say I arrived safely last evening.  I travelled up to London with Byrch who was going to meet his wife at Victoria so we took a cab there together, the latter sent her love to you.

I found Mother pretty well but I think perhaps she looks a little aged.  This is such a wet morning, if it clears a bit perhaps I may go over to Westgate by & bye.  I hope the dogs did not disturb you in the night.  How are the chicks, give them all a good kiss from Papa, tell Jack and May that I went in the great big London train first and then in another great big Ramsgate train.

I must not write much as I may not catch the early mail.  Mother & Charlotte send love and kisses for the children.

Hoping to hear a good account of you, with much love I remain

your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden

They were delighted with the roses, which travelled pretty well, also the fruit.
