My Dearest Wife,
As I have a very busy week before me I will write you a few lines this evening while I have time. I hope to hear your cold is better.
If you come home on Wednesday, as I trust you will be quite fit to do, take the 4.45 from Paddington to Evesham, and I will meet you with a fly and the same conveyance can go on to Bretforton to bring the girls home, it is not worth while for you to run the risk of catching fresh cold for the sake of the hire of a fly.
The children are all well. Cyril sends you a good love, he has been jolly enough to-day. I have had to lecture George about his lessons and he has promised to turn over a new leaf, I fancy Miss Fabling has been rather too easy with him. Kathleen talks of writing you another letter but I do not suppose I shall do so myself. Jim is out on crutches but does not look like work for another week or two. I have early hours to-morrow and next day and Tuesday is also Alcester round, Thursday and Friday Pandy & Newport and Saturday brewing again, we are certainly fairly busy at the Brewery. We had Mr Shawcross to-day I suppose Mr Gepp had exchanged, the Vicarage seems full, the brother is back and his son also the old aunt and Miss Beil, these were all at Church this morning.
Give my love to Fanny and all at Gloucester House and with much to yourself, hoping to welcome you back soon.
ever your loving Husband
