My dearest Wife,

I expect you will have received my p.c. by an earlier mail than this.

It has been a beautiful day here with a cool breeze.  After dinner I took the 2.30 train to Sandwich and George followed by road on his tricycle.  I found Frank as well as I expected, he was sitting in the garden well wrapped up and walked a little on the lawn on Edith’s arm at intervals, he looks much aged but was pretty clear in his head, he has lent me his bicycle so I rode home with George, to-morrow Maidie and I may go to Ash.  Charlotte was so poorly the middle of last week that she had Mr Hulke in, he found her liver somewhat enlarged and prescribed bed till Monday! she seems decidedly better and is already planning further travels for the latter part of October.  Aunt George is very well she came in to dinner last night and afterwards George and I drew as partners at Bridge against her and Lizzie and won two rubbers, afterwards I escorted Aunt back to Rosway and slept there, coming along here after breakfast.

I could not find my “Euxesis” did you pack it? and had to improvise with soap as well as I could, I daresay I can buy a tube in Deal to-morrow.

Tell Ethel the flowers and print travelled well.

Love to you all
Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
