My dearest Wife,

I hope you got your luggage all right, I know you got there yourself for Aunt George told me she had a letter from you, from Chelsea, this morning. 

How is Miss Pollard, tell her I hope to receive her valuable assistance in the garden shortly, but the season of rose grubs is over!

It was curious we should get a view of the “Orantes” near Dover, she made quite a fine show with all her electric lights on, the sea was fairly calm so I hope they were enjoying their dinner!

I have just been writing to Jack and will see that Kath and Cyril have letters this week, I must also write home.

Yesterday morning I went to Sandwich and hired a bicycle for a few days, then I rode to Ash and had a chat with Aunt Susan and back to Delf House to dinner, I had intended cycling back here but it came on to rain in the afternoon so I took train and to-day Frank has brought the machine over, I hope I may have fine weather to get about on it a little.  This morning we just looked in at Rosway and walked to Church with Aunt George and her visitor, this afternoon George and I had a stroll and looked in on Fanny Hayward, now Lizzie has gone to Church and left us to write letters, Frank is at Rosway but will come in later, I must go and stop at least one night at Sandwich this week.

You must let me know which day you are going to Weybridge so that I may know where to address your letters.

It has been fine here to-day but somewhat dull and cool.

With fond love I am ever
Your loving Husband

Julius Sladden
