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!
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
