My Dearest Wife,
I was glad to find you had arrived safely at this side of the waters. I will write a few lines before starting, to send by early post, so that you may hear to-night. I find we are reduced to thin paper, must order some more to-day.
We have had a little rain since yesterday and the weather seems unsettled.
I have to go to Great Alne &c on Tuesday but shall be back in time I hope to welcome you home, if you come from London about 1.30 perhaps you had better take the slow train to Badsey, but if you wait till 4.45 you might book to Evesham and then take the train back to Badsey which leaves soon after 7.30, let us know your plans.
I enclose a letter from Kathleen. The sitting ducks have taken to eating their eggs it is rather tiresome, one ought to hatch on Monday.
Hope they are all well at Richmond give my love to them all and with much to yourself dear wife
I am ever
Your loving Husband
