My Dearest Wife,

I do not think from the tone of your letter, received this afternoon, and from what Fanny says, that it will be wise for you to attempt to come home on Monday and as I hear from Ash that they are desirous at Richmond that Kitty and Ethel should stay on longer I shall give up the idea of our spending the jubilee all together at home, and say at once that you had better stop a little longer with Fanny, who will I am sure take the greatest care of you; in order to make up for the disappointment, I think I shall try and run up on Saturday week (my birthday) and stay over the Sunday and see how you are.  I do not see how I can manage it before.  Fanny says something about your seeing Dr Coleman, but unless you really wanted to send for him I should prefer that you should see, say Dr Cheponell, and let him thoroughly examine you and get his opinion of your case, I have no doubt either Fanny or Polly would go with you.  Please give my love to Fanny and tell her what I say and ask her to excuse my writing to her as I am so pressed for time.  I am all right again myself now.

Perhaps you will let Polly know about your staying on.  I will write again on Sunday.  The enclosed letter came this morning and I have arranged that May shall go and stay with Cynthia to-morrow.  I do hope your bilious attack will soon pass away and that I shall hear in a day or two that you are really getting on.  The little ones are quite well.  With much love.  I am ever

your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden

You need not worry about us at Badsey we shall manage to rub along pretty well.
