My Dearest Eugénie,
I found your Monday letter here on my arrival from Guston and soon after the one written next day arrived, I am so glad to hear you are getting on nicely and shall quite hope to find you much stronger on Saturday, I hope Fanny will be able to put me up without inconvenience but tell her I shall not mind sleeping out if necessary. I am glad I shall have an opportunity of seeing your father. I am so sorry to hear about Joe and trust he may pull round again by and bye. You will have had my letter written from Rosway I presume, Uncle G sent you his love and 10/- for the chicks and Grandma & Aunt Susan have given me, each, 5/- for them so you see there will be 4/- apiece for their money boxes. I was pleased to hear of dear little Kitty.
I must try and go over to Richmond on Sunday and see her. Mother and Charlotte send love to you. They will write when I have left, we shall think of you to-morrow and I shall not forget certain little folks at Badsey, I hope they will be very happy little people. Perhaps you will write a line home and say they may expect one down there about six o’clock on Monday and then I shall have a long evening to write you about the chicks.
With much love to you my dear wife believe me ever
Your affectionate Husband
