My Dearest Wife,
I am so glad you think Fanny will be able to come with you to the Rose Show, the flowers “go” so quickly this weather that I should strongly advise you to get there punctually at 1 o’clock if you wish to see them in their beauty and we can all lunch together, if you want and lunch at home you will not see the flowers to much advantage. The chicks are all well. I must leave all further news till we meet.
your loving Husband
I could not get two private view tickets or you could have come at noon.
4.p.m. The men have just brought your letter down which I was glad to have, I will try and stop till Thursday as the Richmond people are coming Wednesday, is there any need to bring the “armour of light” if so wire on receipt of this, otherwise I shall not trouble to bring it.
