July 27/96

My Dear Kathleen,

I will write a few lines to enclose your travelling money, we are sending 20/- so that you may have ample and you can refund Mother the balance.  

We wish you to come on Thursday that you may just see Ethel who will start for Folkestone on Friday morning, unless the trains are altered you leave Windsor 2.53 Reading arr 4.10 dept 4.42 Oxford arr 5.50 dep 6.17 Evesham arr 7.23 you had better come to Evesham this time and not wait for the slow train that stops at Badsey an hour later, some of us will meet you, you had better verify these times with a table for the present month as I have only an old one at hand.

Arthur came home on Saturday as scarlatina had broken out at the school so speech day is postponed till next term, he looks well enough and seems very jolly.  

I have been sending “Jimmy” his directions for travelling to Folkestone on Thursday, he ought to be there before you start, their prize day is on Wednesday, we are getting his “turnip“ so that Ethel can take it to him.  

Mother has got rid of her face-ache.  Rebecca is leaving Aug 20 as she is to be married a day or two after that so you may be in for some domestic work!

With much love and hoping to welcome you both home on Thursday

I remain
your affectionate Father  

Julius Sladden

Tuesday.  Your letters to hand, must congratulate May on her drawing, glad your reports seem so satisfactory.  Journey money being enclosed you may conclude we do want you home.
