My Dearest Wife,

Your Monday letter went round by Birmingham it seems and did not reach me till yesterday, Thursday, morning.  Your letter from Bourg of 3rd inst. came to hand to-day at breakfast time, Jack was very pleased to hear from you also.  I am glad you have got over your long journey as now that matter will be done with for the present.  

Yesterday I had a long day at Pandy etc and this morning I felt a little bilious.  I expect it was the close weather, however it is passing off and I think I should just put in an appearance at the Byrchs this afternoon.  I wrote to Ethel on Wednesday evening as I thought she would like to hear.  Jack & I rather overslept ourselves this morning but he was a good boy and made real haste for once in the way, he is getting on all right at school so far.  May and Kathleen are good children and make themselves very useful, I think they do their lessons very fairly.  The little boys get along very well of course with an occasional tiff, George being more frequently the offender.  The serge has come and I believe has been sent on to Littleton.  We seem as far off from rain as ever, things would be the better for a shower.  Can we do anything with the raspberries, there are more than we want for ordinary purposes, but the currants are not ready to mix for jam, I suppose they will be washing next week so they must go.  I suppose you will be going to the exhibition soon but you may as well take it easy and not overtire yourself.  I shall post this letter to-night as you ought then to receive it to-morrow evening.

With much love dear wife
I am ever your loving Husband

Julius Sladden
