Sunday Evening

My Dearest Wife,

I must write you a few lines to-night so that you may hear on Tuesday morning.  We have had a lovely day here although it was raining when I got up.  Frank came to dinner and in the afternoon we went over to Margate, a town I’d not think I ever set foot in before, it seems a very improving place.  To-morrow Charlotte & I propose going over to Westgate to lunch.

Fanny called the other day.  If the weather is fine Jack is to come on Wednesday with Tom by an early train and stay till Friday so I shall probably see the little man, I hear he is very happy and quite delighted at the idea of coming to Ramsgate to see the sea again, it appears he enjoyed his first sight of it at St Margaret's last Thursday very much.  My Mother is pretty well again now, she went out in her bath chair to-day.  Charlotte and I went to St George’s Church this morning.  I am enjoying the sea air and have managed to pick up a good appetite.  I hope you are getting on well in my absence though I expect you all missed my being at home on Sunday as usual.  The roses came out nice & fresh and are much admired.  They have most comfortable apartments here and contemplate staying till September 1st when they will return to prepare for George’s visit.  How did the great “yokel” cricket match go off?

Give all the chicks a kiss for me.  Mother & Charlotte send love and with much from myself

believe me ever

your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden

Tell Dayrell to mind and keep the brewing book properly entered up.
