My dearest Wife,

I was glad to get the post card on Sunday and your letter this morning.  Now before I go to bed I must write so that you may get the letter before you leave Rouen.

Our visitors arrived in pouring rain on Friday but since Saturday morning it has been fine and we have had tea in the garden twice.  To-day George and Cyril went with Maidie and Ethel to the Evesham sports, I stopped at home and budded while May and Juliet kept Charlotte company, she was a “little tired” the first day or two but much more equable since.

It is arranged that Maidie and May shall go to Eastbourne for a week after they return from Ireland the latter part of this month (if convenient to Aunt Lizzie) and then they will come back here for Maidie to go with Charlotte into Somersetshire, after a little discussion with George she has promised to get back to Kent by Sep 20th, the people there are getting a little restive about Maidie being trotted about so long and seeing nothing of their part of the country in the nice weather.  

Juliet has taken a violent fancy to Maidie who is certainly very nice with her, the little maid is thus quite happy though she was rather longing for a kiss from Mother to-night, the two post cards she sent to-day were “a secret” and Maidie who was entrusted with it offered to provide the stamps.  Boo as usual is quite a jewel and is in great favour with his Aunt, he is to escort Maidie and Ethel to Warwick one day at her expense, I have rather vetoed too much sight seeing especially such as may just as well be done in the winter.

Wednesday I think will be chiefly devoted to Harvington flower show and I have suggested a river trip and perhaps a day on Malvern hills and an afternoon at Broadway during this visit.  

I hope you and Kath are getting good weather and enjoying yourselves.  I have scarcely felt my neuralgia but am still taking a little of the physic occasionally, at Arthur’s orders, we have not yet heard from him since Cyril saw him off on Saturday.

Tuesday morn. Post card from Arthur this morning telling of his arrival.  We are getting on all right.

Your loving Husband

Julius Sladden

All send love to you both.
