My Dearest Wife,
I could not write yesterday but must post you a letter early this morning. Wednesday I spent about here, in the afternoon we went by tram along the sea shore to Hythe, a pleasant little trip. Yesterday after an early breakfast I started for Sandwich, thence by ‘bus to Ash then I got to Guston to early dinner came with Frank later on to Rosway and returned here by last train.
There is a fleet of fine war ships off Deal so we are going by steamer at 10.30 to see it and we shall get back I suppose about dinner time.
Granny is fairly well but not quite so cheerful as she was a little time back this eczema troubles her.
I hear Polly & Anna are going to Rosway shortly.
I shall not be able to write to any of the chicks as my time is so short. I propose to leave here to-morrow at 1.53 then I shall take the last train from Paddington and hope to be with you at 10.30 P.M. The weather is simply tropical.
With fond love and kisses to the chicks
I am, darling
Your loving Husband
