My dear Wife,

I will write a few lines this evening for you to receive to-morrow afternoon.

It is still very warm down here foggy out at sea so we get a frequent benefit of the fog horn, the sea is like a mill pond to-day.

I went with Aunt George to the cemetery this afternoon, she has Mrs Gillow staying with her for a few days.

George and I have just been to the station to meet Frank and Edith who have come over to supper, they have just gone into Rosway to make a short call.
To-morrow Charlotte is coming over to early dinner and will stay the night at Rosway and we are going in there to spend the evening.

The flowers travelled very well and they were pleased with them and the fruit.  Tell Judy I gave Dopper her message and Scot’s, he sends his love back again, when I tried to take him for a short walk to the sea after Church this morning, I could only coax him a short way from Petone.

I think you may post here up to Monday night as I shall not leave till 1.58.

There is really no news of moment so I will write no more as the others have just come in, hoping to meet you all right on Tuesday evening and with love to you all

I remain
Your loving Husband

Julius Sladden
