Sunday 10.10 a.m.
My Dearest Wife,
Just a line before I go to Church so that you may have a letter on Monday. Your letter has just been brought down and I was very glad to hear about you and that you had a good journey. We are going to take Jack to Church this morning. The children are really very good and Baby seems pretty well and quite contented. Mother is still very poorly, so weak & feverish, Charlotte is writing to Mr Lewis for a prescription and if she does not soon improve I think it will be better to have Haynes, however I hope with a little nursing she will soon mend, I brought her down a little Champagne yesterday.
Jack has just given me a kiss for you and one for May. Kiss my little daughter for me and with much love
Believe me ever
Your affectionate Husband
Glad to have a good account of Fanny, how did the roses travel?
