My Darling Wife,
I was so glad to have your few lines this morning and to hear that you were getting on, I shall not mind if I hear you are cheerful so you must make up your mind to keep in good spirits. My bilious attack has quickly passed off and I am feeling none the worse for it. I have been rather idle to-day, went down to Goss Hall this afternoon and had a cup of tea, the children there have grown tremendously.
To-morrow morning Frank & Edith will call for me and we shall drive to Sandwich and go by rail to Deal for a 2 o’clock dinner, Charlotte is too busy to go, of course I shall go and see Miss Hougham, in the evening I propose to go back to Guston sleep there and return here next day.
Will you write when you can to Badsey and tell them not to have that turkey killed at present. I shall like to wait till you are able to return and then we will have a jollification. I hope you get good news of the chicks, next week I shall be able to send you an account of them.
Give my love to Fanny and tell her I think it was very kind of her to manage to find time to send me a few lines to tell one about you. You must not expect to hear from me on Wednesday as I shall be out to-morrow, on Wednesday I will write but I am afraid I cannot get the letter off by early post. Mother & Charlotte send their love and with much from myself to my poor little wifey I am, as ever,
Your loving husband
