My Dearest Wife,
I was glad to get your letter this afternoon and to hear that you got up all right.
Yesterday I went to Church morning and evening and had supper at the Vicarage, Jack also went to both services. Ethel and Arthur went with me in the morning and as they were very anxious to go to Wickhamford in the afternoon with Fanny, I let her take them, there was I hear a very full Church, Mrs Mason took all three services. I posted you an Evesham Journal this evening but had no time to write.
I am glad Polly is going for a change to Brighton as it will probably do her good. Give my love to Fanny and tell her I hope to have a better account of her shortly, how does she think you and the children looking? Tell Charlie I had to exercise a great deal of self denial to forego the day’s mashing on Wednesday, but I really could not have managed it, putting aside the expense, I must finish off the books for the valuers who return on Thursday to complete the job. To-morrow there is a school meeting at 7 P.M. and I am booked to suffer at the Gepps afterwards. I propose going to dine at Rawlinson’s on Wednesday, he has some friends coming to meet me, shall return early next day.
Jack prefers coming home Wednesday afternoon and will write you a letter then. Jack’s cold is no worse, he got top in Latin today, he sends his love and kisses to you all. Baby’s cold is better but Arthur is getting one now. Kiss the little girls for me and with much love to you and hoping you are enjoying yourself I remain
ever your loving Husband
The little ones send love and kisses to all.
