My dear Kathleen,

I will begin a letter to you up here or I may not get in time for post as we have more people coming to see the roses and have tea.

We are all very elated about Arthur’s splendid success, the wire came just as they were starting to Warwick and I got the news when I met them in the train at Badsey station, Dip has had many telegrams of congratulation among others from Mr Chambers, Mr Morton and his college tutor Mr Lambert, we were sorry James was a class below as he would have found a first very useful in securing some science appointment, which he will now seek, they both take their B.A. degree on Saturday and now Arthur’s way is clear for his M.B. work.

I do wish you could have seen Warwick Pageant it was really very fine indeed and I should have been sorry to have missed it, the weather was perfect and the site an ideal one and all together the scene was magnificent one, everything too went off without a hitch, tickets are at a premium and all the 5/- were sold out a week ago.  I wanted an extra ticket as Norah is with us but was obliged to get a half guinea one or go without, Arthur occupied that seat as it was some distance from ours and I did not grudge the expense as he so thoroughly enjoyed it and it seemed like keeping high festival after his brilliant success, we had a capital luncheon on reaching Warwick and altogether had a “high” day.

The roses are quite a fine sight this year and have been very much admired, one enthusiast describing them as “one of the sights of the Midlands”.

I think Ethel, Arthur and I shall go to Wolverhampton next week.  I hope the moss will soon turn up, I must enquire about it to-morrow if it has not arrived.

We are expecting Mrs Burrows to-morrow for one night, she is at Warwick to-day I believe.

George still writes in good spirits.  

There is a letter of May’s I think at hone for me to enclose you can send it back when you write on Sunday. 

I do hope you will soon get settled with something but do not worry, it is sure to come in due time and in any case do not accept anything offered without due consideration.

With love from all
I remain 
your affectionate Father

Julius Sladden
