July 9/89

My Dearest Wife,

I should have written you a few lines last night but Mr Gepp looked in and now must scribble a hasty letter to post this morning, so that you may hear once more before you leave Paris.  We are getting on all right but are glad to think you will be with us in less than a week now, dear wife.

I have just packed up a nice bag of pears to send to George, which we picked yesterday evening, they are coming in all together as usual.

My shirts have come at last and I think they will do nicely, they seem rather larger in the neck but perhaps that is just as well.  The rain still holds off but I think we shall get some to-day.

I shall expect to have a line on Friday morning to tell me of your arrival at Surbiton.  I have not heard from you since Saturday, but may probably get a letter by afternoon mail.  The children all send their love to dear mother and with much from myself believe me ever

your loving Husband

Julius Sladden

Love to your Father and Paris friends. You had better arrange with Joe about your expenses before you leave.
