Dec 22/84

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.

So your Father did not go to Richmond after all, I shall be glad to hear how he is looking, when does he propose to return, perhaps I may manage to see him after all.

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

Julius Sladden
