My Dearest Wife,

I was glad to have your letter this morning, I will write this evening as I may go to the bee lecture to-morrow.  It has been such a rough wet day and is blowing and raining hard now.  I am glad I managed to get through a little gardening yesterday when it was fine.  The children seem to be getting on pretty well, Cyril says it is rather dull sometimes, however he is jolly enough.  I hope Polly is home by this time and that her head-ache was only a temporary one, has Anna quite recovered from her illness.  I shall not go away on Sunday I think but must try and fix a day with Rawlinson for next week.  Kathleen has been writing to you and is I see in a fag about my collars, I have forgotten to claim them but must tell her in the morning.  I will see  to Louisa’s wages in a day or two.  I have just been writing to Smith about the tiles on the roof as I hear the wet is coming through.

I met Mr Savory to-day in Evesham and his wife yesterday en route, with Joyce, to Malvern, to leave her there, they go away to-morrow I understand.  Have you written to Jack this week? if you like to do so I will wait till next.  I must write to Folkestone soon you will have news of them, direct from Polly besides Georgie’s letter, Sunday evening I must devote to answering that long epistle.

Mr Gepp told me his wife had had the bad tooth extracted, I thought perhaps under reported circumstances that it was not exactly a prudent proceeding, they had only  just eaten the goose with which I think they were rather pleased.  We had some of the preserved eggs boiled for breakfast yesterday, they were quite as good as last year but I prefer a new laid one for boiling.

Give my love to all the Richmond circle and with much for yourself
I am ever your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
