My Dearest Wife,

I will answer your letter (received this afternoon) before post time so that you may hear on Monday morning.  I am going to bring some special ointment from Dixon's which is said to be good for ringworm, mind and keep the little one’s head gear away from the others.

We went to Rosway yesterday and found them very well, to-day it has been snowing and unpleasant, I went and had a long chat with Aunt Susan who seemed much as usual and was pleased to hear all about our circle.  I have not been to Goss Hall for I understand Uncle was going to Canterbury to-day, there is a cattle show on.  I shall probably take the 4.45 train from Paddington on Tuesday so that you may look for me about 8 P.M. on that day if I do not write again.  Edith is at Richmond and will bring May home on Monday, I hope Polly will not divulge any secrets!

I will enclose two or three lines for the chicks as I expect they will like to hear.  I daresay you will go to the Vicarage again before I return as they are very neighbourly.  

I think the Ash smells are worse than ever.  I hear a scheme of drainage is talked about.

I am very glad to have paid my visit but shall as usual be very pleased to get home again to my wife and bairns.  With fond love believe me ever

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden

Mother and Charlotte send their love.
