May 10/88

My Dearest Wife,

I was glad to have your letter this morning and to hear of your doings, we shall all be pleased to see you back on Saturday, shall you come to Badsey by the train that I did?

They gave me a parliamentary ticket so you ask for one, the station master at Badsey says they sometimes give them by that train and sometimes not.  Mr Hunt’s letter will do when you come back, I presume you did not forward Miss Holton’s because of the cash in it.  Hope you got on all right at the House of Commons.

It is quite cold again so I have said nothing about changing Kitty’s vest, that little imp is bright enough and certainly fatter.  I am glad to hear a better account of Fanny.  The chicks all send love and kisses to you and Arthur and they say they want you both back very much.  With fond love to you and kisses for the little chap, with kind remembrances to Surbiton friends I remain

your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
