June 28/87

My Dearest Wife,

I sent you a post card this morning as I thought I should not find much time to write a letter before to-night.  Mr Haynes called to enquire after you so I ordered another bottle of tonic, which has gone on to-day, he says you might give up the cod-liver oil for a time if you like.  Things seem to have gone on pretty well during my absence, Jack has posted his letter to Kitty, he completed it while I was away and for his own production I think it very good, he has given the beacon hills very fairly well considering some of the names were quite new to him and he had not had his memory refreshed since the night of 21st, however you will doubtless see the letter yourself.  My roses are nicely out with the exception of the H.P.’s, which want a few more days, as yet there is only here and there a bloom, the pillars & summer roses are nearly at their best, those on the walls fully so, while the teas are well out, they strike me as rather small for the most part, but very beautiful in colour and first this season, I propose to take a few to Moreton on Thursday but I shall not be surprised if want of size in the teas tells against me while with H.P.’s I cannot expect to do much.  I may as well send you the L.R.S. tickets as I shall not want any myself.  The little ones send Mother a good kiss.  I hope the hay-making party was a success.  Give my love to Fanny and tell her she is not to relax her strictness over you, though I don’t think she means to!

Your loving Husband

Julius Sladden
