Wednesday morn.
Feb 8/93

Dear Ethel,

Thank you for your little letter which came yesterday.  This morning after breakfast we are going to take the omnibus into Canterbury and after spending an hour or two there shall go on to Surbiton.

Mr Haynes wrote the other day to say Jack was feeling poorly and would not be fit to come out this week.  

Perhaps we may see Uncle John and Auntie Lottie in London before we return.  Auntie left her bridal bouquet for Grandma and some of the flowers are fresh yet.  We went to see Aunt Susan yesterday and she gave Mother 10/- for you children, we went all round her garden.

I hope your chicken and chicks keep laying, you will soon get a lot of duck eggs, mind the ducks go to the water every day.  I expect the little pigs will be very much grown and very knowing now that they have seen the world.  We are going to bring “Ministering Children” for you to read.

It is dull this morning but I hope it will clear up and turn out a bright day like yesterday.

Any letters must now be forwarded to Surbiton.

Mother joins me in love to you all and kisses for Baby.

Your affectionate Father

Julius Sladden
