My Dearest Wife,

I was glad to get your letter, which was brought down this morning while I was at Wickhamford Church with Jack & Kitty, I am glad you saw Dr Adams yourself, especially as it is evident May will want much looking after, with respect to the exercising plane, I think I will write to Frank before we get one and see if he thinks he could get theirs copied well at any considerable reduction upon the London prices, if one could only know where to pitch upon a second hand one (and there are no doubt plenty about) that would be the thing to go in for.  

The chicks are very well and happy, they went to Aldington again yesterday afternoon.  Kitty sends you three kisses and three loves which she has just entrusted to me for delivery, Jack & Ethel also send love and kisses to you, May and all Richmond friends, I am glad Polly was able to go to London with you.  I have not yet seen Baby as he did not go to sleep till nearly dinner time and so did not put in an appearance for dessert.  Kiss dear little May for me and tell her we are all wanting to see her, Jack and Kitty keep counting the days till Wednesday. I hope you found Fanny better, shall you arrange to see Martha this time?  We have a beautiful day here, as was yesterday with the exception of the early morning.  I hope you are feeling pretty well and that the few days change will do you good.  I will try and send this letter up to post.  Give my love to all at Marshgate House and with much to yourself

believe me ever
Your loving Husband

Julius Sladden
