June 7th 1887
I was glad to hear from you again yesterday and I hope by this time you are really feeling the benefit of this nice change of weather. Rashleigh is back, his father seems very well unwell again. I am awfully busy, had 3½ hours last evening distributing jubilee tickets in Bewdley St, hope to finish to-night, to-morrow is the Alcester day, I shall get Dayrell to take the chicks to see the wild beasts, in company with Cynthia whom we have promised to escort. I got Jack a good strong pair of boots at Haines’ which he says are “comfy.” I had not forgotten the little ferns. The hats have gone to Harries but he does not think he can do anything with them, you or Mrs Savory must see him on your return. I enclose a letter from Mrs W Myatt sent in to be forwarded. May spends the afternoon at Aldington to-day, I must get Cynthia and her visitor (Marion Ashwin) to come to tea with her shortly, dear little Arthur is quite good and happy and baby is for ever getting down stairs when he has the chance and pulling all the croquet balls out of the stand. I hope you took plenty of your music with you as no doubt Mr Fellows appreciates it rather more than some people. You must write and tell me all about yourself, little wife.
I may not be able to find time to write to-morrow but will if I can. We are going on pretty well considering and so far I have managed to get Jack up in time for school, but of course its’ a struggle. How is Aunt Lizzie’s garden? give her my love and kind remembrances to Mr Fellows.
With fondest love to you my darling wife.
I am ever your affectionate Husband
