Jan 9/85

My Dearest Eugénie,

I will write before the evening closes in order that you may have a line on Sunday.  The chicks have fairly shaken off their colds now and no more bulletins need be issued!  Jack and May each gave me a kiss to send you and the former said “tell Mamma I am such a nice little boy that I love myself very  much indeed.” I am rather tired after the ball, you did not miss much for “slow” was the word and no mistake, at least such was my verdict and that of the Byrchs, we rode back in the same fly as far as the elm and then I saw Miss Lopez as far as Aldington and drove on home, the Savorys could not quite be persuaded to go.  Mr Radleigh returns on Monday I believe, I shan’t be sorry when I have invited him and Sadler into the new mode of mashing and thus avoid any early journeys.  The fitters have all but finished and shan’t I be glad to see their backs.  

Phillis hopes you will not arrange to come early next week while the washing is on and although I do not wish to delay your coming, when you feel strong enough, perhaps it would be better, as we must not let you attempt to do too much at first.  I am posting you the Evesham Journal having read it this evening.  To-morrow, Saturday, is my Worcester day and one day next week I want to go to Pandy.

With much love
Believe me ever

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
