April 9th/00

My Dear Kathleen,

I will enclose a cheque which I daresay Sister will cash for you and out of it pay the examination fees 27/6 while the balance 17/- should suffice to bring you and Ethel home, as it will be Easter Monday I shall not be able to have your luggage brought from Evesham so you must have it labelled to Badsey, from which station Roberts can fetch it, you can if you like travel to Evesham yourselves by the fast train and walk home, if you have not too much to carry, otherwise you can accompany your luggage by slow train and alight at Badsey, send a post card as to which you elect to do as I daresay some of the boys will like to meet you.

We had a few lines from Dip to-day he had been out of school for a few days with influenza but was better and hoped to travel by the first train on Wednesday, of course he was out of the sports and could only see them from a window.

Jack seems to like his lodgings so far, he finds the air in the north of London more bracing, he is going to Folkestone for Easter but we do not know yet if he will be able to get the Saturday and thus start on the Thursday.

May’s exam is fixed for Easter Wednesday and she has notice to attend that morning some place near Hyde Park.

I hope you will be pretty well satisfied with your exams all round, tell Ethel not to despair of the result of hers too much, she should take a lesson out of Cyril’s book who certainly does not unduly depreciate his efforts.  We shall be glad to get you all home soon.

Love to you both
Your affectionate Father

Julius Sladden

I must send the account of the Queen’s review of 50,000 Irish children in Dublin, brought from all parts
