My Dearest Wife,
I was glad to have your letter about the visit to Mr Adams and to find it was fairly satisfactory. I enclose a letter received from Miss Corbett, we have acknowledged the cheque from the office. I am glad they think you looking well, let me know when you propose to return and by what train, do not be particular to a day if you care to stop. I cannot write much as I am very busy and want to catch the morning post. The chicks are all jolly. Jack has managed to dress in time every morning and has not been late for school once, he seems happy enough and I have helped him prepare his lessons. I think you will enjoy the colonies.
Your loving Husband
