My dearest Wife,

I was glad to have yours of Sunday just before starting for Deal.

I have just got in this evening after my round of visits.  I found Aunt George very well and stayed at Rosway last night.  I got to Ash about noon and had a little chat with Aunt Susan before going to lunch at the Gardners, then at 3 P.M. I went to see her again and stayed to tea, taking the 5.46 train from Sandwich, I found her fairly well and bright but she has distinctly failed during the last 12 months, she was pleased to get Kathleen’s letter to-day.  Aunt Lizzie will be glad to see me so I think I shall move on to Eastbourne in good time on Thursday for it is rather depressing here with poor old John in such a feeble state.

I suppose I shall get letters from several forwarded on to-morrow and then I must write to M., A. & G. as I must also write to George and Dilnot before leaving here it strikes me I shall have rather a plethora of correspondence, I think it fine I must write my letters by the sea front.

It has been a lovely day and quite pleasant for my walk to and fro from Sandwich.  

I believe I am in for a tea to-morrow, however it will be somewhat of a variation from the monotony of this place.

Do not post any more letters here but to Eastbourne up to 9.30 A.M. on Thursday.  I want if possible to see George in the early post of Friday, I do not know, till I have studied the trains, if I can get to Richmond in time for lunch, of course I want to make an appointment with Jack for that evening.

Kiss “Judy” for me, I wish I had the little maid here as a companion.

Love to you, dear and Ethel

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
