Oct 28/93

My Dearest Wife,

I was so sorry to hear this morning that you were so poorly with your cold and hope to hear it is getting better soon.  You had better stay for the concert on Tuesday and although we all want you home again it would be better for you to prolong your stay still further unless you are feeling pretty well again.  The children are invited (the three girls) to keep Hilda Ashwin’s birthday on Wednesday, 4 to 8, I have written to accept as you were away.  I have not heard anything from Folkestone lately, I fancy Mother is there by this time.  The children are all well and send their love and kisses, they have 5 chicken from the stolen nest.  You had better get me the flannel shirts you mention my collar size is 16.  There is really no news of any interest so I will close this as I must be off to business.  Give my love to Fanny, I am glad Charlie has had such good sport. With fond love

I am ever
your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
