My Dearest Wife,

I have only time to scribble a line or two, as Rashleigh is waiting to take this up to post.  Jack went to have his voice tried yesterday and they seemed to think he had a very fair idea of tune so they asked me if he might go to church this afternoon so the little man went into the choir for the first time, I could not manage to go to Church to see him.  All the chicks send kisses to you and May, they have slight colds but nothing to speak of.  It will not be worthwhile my writing to-morrow as you propose to return on Tuesday.  I was glad to have your letter of yesterday brought down this morning, and to hear all about your doings, I am so glad you have had a pleasant time, we shall be very glad to see you home.  Dayrell has afforded Rashleigh & one much amusement by his immense fatigue after 50 minutes of football!  It is very good of Fanny to make you and May such nice presents, give my love to her and all neighbouring friends.  Now I must close, with much love my pet

believe me ever
your loving Husband

Julius Sladden

My love and a kiss to May
