My dear Kathleen,

We had no letter from May by the Brindisi mail so must wait till Sunday when the “Frisco” mail should bring us news up to the middle of January.

Mother has been to a G.F.S. meeting at Worcester to-day and arrived home about 6P.M.  

To-morrow afternoon we are expecting George and Anna by the 4.13 train.

Miss Pollard has written to Mother asking her to make peace with you and Ethel for not having answered either of your letters! she hopes you will both go and stay with her again some time as she enjoyed having you there, she had been to see Miss Biggs since the elections and found them rather disappointed having been led to expect a majority of 900!

We enjoyed our little trip to Leamington and found Aunt Lizzie quite well, Mother had not seen her for 19 years so naturally found her a good deal aged, the “Regent” is a swell sort of hotel and I expect somewhat expensive, on the way back Mother spent a few hours with Miss Corbett, she seemed very well, we were lucky in our day at Leamington for since then it has been wet and squally on and off. 

They enjoy having a peep at Punch and I can digest it more thoroughly at home than at the Club, “The Higher Life” was very charming.

Jack has moved into another room where the head had too many juniors and wanted some one a little more experienced, Jack is now empowered to deal with the simpler sort of “claims”, I hope the move may be eventually advantageous to him.

Cyril’s confirmation appears to be March 19th not 9th as at first stated, of course Mother hopes to go to Brecon for it but Monday is not a very convenient day.

Brailsford is awaiting George’s help in re-laying the turf on the lawn where the levelling has been done.

Ethel talks of writing to you presently, now she is singing in the drawing room.

Auntie Fanny is moving at Lady Day I fancy she is rather disquieted at the fact that Lily’s husband has little or nothing to do at present, that is not a very good outlook.

With our united love
I remain 
your affectionate Father

Julius Sladden
