My dear little Judy Betty,

I am writing this letter on a ship where there is a post office and all sorts of convenient arrangements, presently Mother and I are going into another room where we shall have dinner while the ship is moving along.

When we were at Edinburgh we saw at the Castle a place where the soldiers bury their bow-wows when they are dead, there were a lot of little graves rather like poor old Prinny’s in our orchard.  I also saw one day two little calves going for a ride in a big cart and thought you would like to see them, they were smaller than those in our orchard.

I expect you liked seeing Edwin and his baby sister did you see her little toes.

I hope you are a good little girl and do not forget to say please and thank you.

Your loving Father

Julius Sladden
