My dearest Wife,

I will write to you this evening as I may not get so good an opportunity to-morrow.

It has been very rough and wet to-day and so I have had to do a good deal of reading.   I was fortunate yesterday in having a fine day for my Ash visit, Aunt Susan was not very well and I thought her somewhat aged, on my way back yesterday afternoon I looked in again at Rosway but found Uncle in bed, he seems to me to be breaking fast, I think it highly probable that Mother will outlive him and perhaps Aunt Susan.

I have written to Arthur to-day and sent a post card to George to appraise him of my visit on Saturday, I may as well return their letters.  Jack says I can have a bed on Friday at his diggings.  I have asked him to meet me at Charing X about 5P.M.  On Saturday morning I am to meet May and Mary at Waterloo soon after 10.

I am glad Ethel is getting rid of some of the fruit, I expect the wind is bringing some of it down.  I shall write a post card to the office instructing someone to meet me with the trap on Saturday by the last train so that I ought to reach home by 10.30 I shall be glad to be with you again dear although I have enjoyed my little holiday.  Tell Baba to look out for me when she wakes up on Sunday morning, when I shall have a lot to tell her.

I think I must reserve any further chat till we meet with much love to you all

I am ever
Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
