My Dearest Wife,
I have sent you off by parcel post a bottle of medicine, addressed to Eastbourne and if you want any more in a similar way it can be sent. I hope you will get up all right with the chicks without taking further cold, of course you will not go on if you do not feel up to it, or it does not seem wise and if so you must wire, but I hope you will be able, as I am anxious you should get to the sea-side.
Give my love to Polly and tell her I think it very kind of her to take the little girls for a short time, I hope her cold is better. Jack is in the office, he will add a postscript.
Ever your loving Husband
My cold is about the same. I kept top of history. I wonder what Ethel will do when she gets to Richmond. J.D.S.
A kiss to all.
