My dearest Wife,

To-morrow being Sunday I had better write a few lines to post in the morning as you may expect a letter on Monday.

To-day, as yesterday, it was cloudy in the morning but we had a little sunshine in the afternoon so I hope you have seen Tintern under favourable circumstances and that Kathleen was able to join you and Aunt in the trip.

I had to attend a meeting at Worcester to-day and this afternoon Ethel went to the theatre there with some of the Idiens and the Orchards and they appear to have enjoyed the play, “Scarlet Pimpernel”, very much, George cycled over in time to join them at tea at George’s and was back about half an hour after Ethel, I came by an earlier train than the theatre party and found Juliet quite ready to keep me company in the garden, I got her to help pick grubs from the rose trees!  George is working late this evening after his outing.

I have just shut the window for it has turned rather cold.

Ethel was pleased to have your letter this morning and Juliet to receive a picture card.  I hear to-day that Mrs James Ashwin’s father died suddenly on Thursday, I understand that he was known to be suffering from heart disease.

You must let me know if there is anything to procure for the house that Aunt George likes, give her my love and say she must try and avoid catching colds with these easterly winds about.

I hope you are enjoying yourself and feeling all the better for the change, what do you do of an evening?

I have sent that table to Fowlers to be done up.  Ethel thinks her finger is really improving she has some lotion for it.

Ethel and George send their love and with much from myself

I remain
Your loving Husband

Julius Sladden

We are getting along all right so far.
