My dearest Wife,

I hope you will have received my wire sent from Tilbury yesterday evening.  Jack met me at Paddington and we went on to Fenchurch St and just nicely caught the 3.22 to Tilbury on the platform we found George and Frank with Kathleen, our George did not accompany them as he thought we were a sufficiently large party, we had not been many minutes on the pier when the “Oroya” was sighted in the distance, there was some doubt if she could get into dock however she just managed it and we were on board before 6 o’clock, it took some time to get the baggage cleared so we did not reach London till too late for the last train down, we stayed at the Manchester Hotel and got down here to-day about 12.40 of course we left May last night with Jack and Kath, she is looking wonderfully well and so is Charlotte though the Red Sea has taken down some of their flesh!

I do not think we shall get down before Wednesday afternoon.  To-morrow Aunt George wants us all to spend the evening there.

We came here to-day and Edith and Norah joined us, later on I am going to Sandwich.

Much love to all

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
