My Dearest Wife,

I received your letter this morning and was glad to hear a really better account of you, now I will drop a line by early post which perhaps you may receive late this evening, after your arrival at Surbiton.

I hope dear, you will not be over fatigued by the journey this hot weather.  I enclose a letter from Mrs Byrch which has just arrived, “to be forwarded”.

The chicks are all very good and happy, May has a slight cough but nothing much.  I must try and let them see the great circus to-morrow afternoon, if possible.  I am very busy altogether and have been rather upset by the sudden change to great health, on Monday I was up to very little work but am better now, though not quite up to feeding well yet.  

You did not reply to my observations as to your return, you quite understand I do not wish you to attempt to come home on Monday if you think that a longer change is desirable though of course we shall all be very pleased to welcome you back.  Now I must close as I have a short council meeting and lots of other work to attend to.  With much love

I remain ever
your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
