My Dearest Wife,

I thought you would rather expect a letter from me on Sunday but I had some business to do in London Saturday morning which took up all my time, Fanny promised to write but I conclude she had no time for more than a post card.  Yesterday Charlotte and I went to Rosway to early dinner, I saw Miss Hougham who was tolerably comfortable.  At Kent House I only saw Uncle Noakes and Bessie, for Lee had taken her Mother up to London and Dora was away too.  I am sorry Miss Savory has to go away so soon but as I had not thought of returning later than Saturday it need not interfere with my movements at all.  I am glad May is to go out on Friday give her a good kiss and love from Papa and tell her Auntie Lottie sends a kiss too.  I am writing this immediately after breakfast to catch the early post, afterwards I shall go up to see Austen Gardner at the brewery and then perhaps to Goss Hall, I have not yet been to Guston.  I hope you are keeping pretty well and you must try and keep your spirits up, old woman!  I hope the babies are good and happy give them a good kiss apiece from me.  I really did not have time to go to the dentist, must see how time fits in on my return.  I shall be quite glad to see you all again and should have liked to take a peep on my way at the two absent ones.  Now I think I must close, so with much love my dear little wife, and the same from Mother and Charlotte I remain

ever your loving Husband

Julius Sladden
