My Dear Kathleen,

I think you will readily put up with a small sheet of paper when I tell you that in lieu of a long letter I propose coming to see you for an hour or two on my way to Folkestone next Saturday and I rather want to have a little talk with Miss Smith as to your future work.  I expect to arrive at Windsor at 1.20 and leave at 4.15 if you can get some early dinner you can meet me at the station, as you & May did before, and if I find neither of you there I will make my way to St Margaret’s House as best I can.

Fancy “Dip” started off 2nd in his form in the first order given out, he says he is getting on all right in the second mathematical set and is about half way up at present, he thinks the Parrish’s food has done him good.

We went to the literary last night but the hostess Mrs Gilpin was unfortunately ill and unable to be present, a number of new members were elected including May and Hilda Ashwin and of course Eve Haynes!  I only had a small part “Le Bean” assigned to me in the first instance in “As you Like it” but eventually read “Jacques” on short notice and Mother did ditto for “Touchstone”, it was not a very lively affair.  

Mother has undertaken an evening in January.

Georgie could not give us his first fortnight’s order when he wrote on Sunday but we hope to hear he is tolerably high next week.

Tell Ethel I am glad she seems getting along well, she must read more and that will improve her composition.  

I have more letters to write so will close this one.

With much love to you both and hoping to see you soon

I remain 
your affectionate Father

Julius Sladden
