Apr 15/97

My Dear Kathleen,

I must write a few lines as I expect you will like to hear this week although you are coming home on Monday.

You will not have to wait about much if you travel by the 9.30 from Windsor but it is rather a slow train, you had better book to Badsey and some of us will meet you at that station at 1.32.  Georgie came home yesterday evening in high spirits, he is 2nd in term order which I think very creditable.  

Arthur has an excellent report again, he is 3rd in form, I think his absence two or three times, on account of illness, lost him at least a place.

I am glad you and May have such nice reports, I hope you will have come out well in the remaining examinations.

I have arranged for some lodgings for Jack which are economical and will I hope prove comfortable, they are in a quiet street close to Clapham Junction, he will go May 3rd.  Arthur returns April 30th and George on May 7th.

I had a pleasant visit to Byfleet and thought that (while there) the dream of dwelling in marble halls was becoming a reality!

Uncle John thinks the keeping of you over Easter at the school is simply “idiotic”.  I will leave Mother to give any other news to May.

With love to you both and hoping to see you home to dinner on Monday

I remain
your affectionate Father

Julius Sladden
