Dec 26th/84

My Dearest Eugénie,

I must write you a line to say I propose leaving Sandwich to-morrow by 1.21 train, due in London about 4.30 p.m.

I shall come on direct to Surbiton but the trains may very probably be somewhat late.

I liked your pretty Xmas card very much and it was nice of you to send it, dearest.

Mother & Aunt Susan both send their love and were pleased to be remembered.  I have just been down to dinner at Goss Hall, Uncle T was very hospitable and told me when I said good-bye that for the future he should charge me 4 per cent instead of 5 on his loan which was very kind of him, this will mean a relief of £12 a year.  I will not write more as I hope to with you so soon 

With much love

I am your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
