June 6/95

My Dearest Wife,

I quite intended to have written you a few lines in time for this day’s post, but since I got up this morning at 4.45 to the time I arrived home in the evening, just in time for the School Board meeting,  I was really fully occupied.  I have not been able to map out your journey home either and I have no time table down here, if you like to take the 1.50 from Westbourne Park you would reach Badsey at 5.18 and coming from Richmond you do not have to cross platforms at Westbourne Park so that is convenient, however come what way you like, I have a journey on Saturday but shall try and take the 5.15 train to Badsey if I can manage it.

We are all very anxious to get you home again and I find the evenings rather dull.

The Football dinner went off all right last night and they were really no nuisance, of course the boys were much interested.

Have you written to Jack this week, I do not think he has had a letter from here.  I expect little Cyril is delighted to see you again, we have missed him very much.

It is quite chilly to-night, I wish we could get some warm rain.

If you think of it will you thank Mary for her letter to me enclosing one from Cyril.  The chicks are all well, but in bed long ago.

With much love and hoping to see you soon, dear wife

I remain
your loving Husband

Julius Sladden
