My dearest Wife,

I will begin this letter in the office and finish it in pencil en route to Pandy.

I was glad to get your letter this morning with enclosures, I expect May is worrying herself and I think her complaint is mainly nervous, it is a good thing the holidays are near.

I enclose a letter received from Arthur, I hope he will find later papers more to his liking, it is a good thing he has another and probably better chance at Oxford.

Tell Mary room can be found for the Sutherland table although you do not require one!

There was a very sharp frost last night and I am afraid it has got into the frame which was not covered with anything, I did not anticipate its being quite so sharp.

The party at Mrs New’s is put off till Saturday week.  

The new domestic is much more of a servant than we have had for some time and we are so far favourably impressed.

I wrote to Kathleen and Cyril last night and am reserving this evening for Dilnot and probably Lewie.

I am glad Polly will be back in time to see a little of you, by all means go to Weybridge on Monday and return next day.  Baby is quite well and as usual a good girl.

I hope to get home tomorrow evening soon after 8 o’clock.  On Monday I shall have to attend the County Council meeting.

Give my love to Mary, I hope to find her a few roses as soon as I can get time to lift them.

With much love to yourself dear and hoping you are enjoying a little rest.

I am as ever
Your affectionate Husband 

Julius Sladden
