My Dearest Eugénie,
I sent you a post card yesterday and will now follow it up with a letter. Polly went up with me yesterday to London, with May, Mr Adams’ report is “going on very well indeed” his few little suggestions I must bring down with me, the stays are to go to Ernst’s to-morrow for a little repair. The Surbiton people are invited to dine here to-morrow so I propose to go down to Ash on Tuesday. Polly wants to know how much she owes you for the honey. How are you all getting on, I should have liked to be at home to-day. We all went to the parish Church to-day where the vicar preached.
It is very warm and fine, as usual I find the place somewhat relaxing. Presently I am going for a walk with Mary, she hopes the bazaar will be early in May as then she might be able to come down. May sends her love and a kiss to you all, she seems very happy with her cousins.
All here send their love, they seem very well, Polly included. Now with fond love to you my dear wife and the little ones
ever your affectionate Husband
