My Dearest Wife,
I received your letter this morning and am glad to know you are once more on English soils, do you propose to return on Tuesday?
I shall probably be at Pandy Thursday night, we shall all be very glad to get you home.
I enclose two letters which came to-day, have sent word to Mrs Collier that you are away and that your letter shall be forwarded.
Last evening I went to the affair at Tower House, about 27 turned up and it went off very well.
I am sorry you have not lost your cold, but I was rather afraid travelling about this time of year would hardly prove a cure, I know Fanny will coddle you up well and exert her greatest medical ingenuity on your behalf.
Jim Ewins will not be fit for work for another week or two and so it makes me pretty busy, however Mr Palliser is of some assistance. They seem to be getting along pretty well at home and Phillis is quite good tempered, Cyril is jolly enough.
Now I must close as I have a lot to do.
With fond love, dear, believe me ever
your affectionate Husband
Hope Charlie’s throat is better, has he had any pheasant shooting.
