My Darling Wife,

As I was quite unable to find time to write yesterday I will send you a letter by early post to-day.

I received yours of 8th inst. this morning and am glad to hear you feel a little stronger, now with this nice weather you must try and shake off your cold and cough you are a good little woman to keep me posted in your doings and I was glad to have news of Kitty & Ethel.  Yesterday I went to Alcester and had a  pleasant evening, I brought Jack & May up in the afternoon for the wild beast show, Dayrell took them in my absence, together with the Aldington party and I think it was a very great treat I believe they are going to write to you about it, Jack is a good boy with his lessons and seems to be keeping his place well at school, he is rather slow drawing and yesterday we had a little scene over it, May seems very happy in her little quiet way.  The two little ones are jolly enough, Arthur thinks he would like Ethel to come back now, yesterday while we were at early dinner they dressed baby up in the little knickerbocker suit and he came across the hall looking such a little rogue, he trots about splendidly now.   Tomorrow Rashleigh is taking a team to play against Moreton.  I may possibly run up if it is fine and I can manage a few hours.  Has Mr Fellows been able to drive you to Pevensey, there is a fine old Norman ruin there.  That poor little Jane Harris was buried yesterday I believe she died on Saturday.

I sent you more medicine yesterday and hope it arrived safely also the Evesham Journal.

The weather here is lovely, quite warm in the day time especially.  I must really try and get round my poor neglected roses soon.  Now I must close, with fond love to you and kisses from the children.  I am ever

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
