My Dear Ethel,

There does not seem much news for you but I will write a few lines and post to Folkestone as I daresay you will be back there by Tuesday.  May is sending on a letter from Miss Hargraves about the College at Orleans which you two and friends at Folkestone may like to see, it had better be returned when you are writing.  I hope the weather is now settling down for fine, the wet seems quite to have spoilt the Canterbury week, what did you do with yourselves on Thursday, of course there was the cathedral you could look over.  

I hope uncle John did not catch cold.  Tell Auntie the wine has been ordered on and say I was pleased to get her letter last week which I must answer later on.

I don’t think the plums will be fit to pick this week, the boys are going to try and earn something at picking this time.

Of course we could not attempt a “bike” ride on Bank Holiday although the afternoon was fine it blew a gale and tents were wrecked both at Evesham and Tewkesbury.

George and Cyril went to the Sports as I had some tickets from the office, there were only 3000 there and the committee will lose the greater portion of their reserve fund of £300.

I am glad to have a good report of Grannie, give her my love also ours to Uncle & Auntie and yourselves.

Your affectionate Father 

Julius Sladden
