My Dearest Wife,

It is so very snowy here that I thought it better to abandon my projected trip to Dover this morning.  I was not sorry to commence my warm underclothing to-day.  Last evening I went down to Guston but Charlotte did not accompany me as the weather was not inviting.  This evening I shall go into Austen Gardner's for an hour or two.  I hope we shall be able to get to Rosway to-morrow but I fancy there is more snow to come.  The post has just come in this afternoon (rather late) bringing your letter and a post-card from George to say the apples had arrived.  I expect Jack feels the change of weather, wrap him up well and give him a course of cod-liver oil.

I hope the chicks will not catch cold to-morrow but it is very sharp here.  Uncle Tom is rather better I think but we have no news of him to-day.  I will enclose a few lines to the boys this time.  Tell Miss Jourdain I hope she has the offer of a “second helping” during my absence. I hope the chicks are good please kiss them all for me and with much love to yourself, darling

Believe me ever

Your loving Husband

Julius Sladden
