My dear Wife,
I have just come along here from Rosway and will write a few lines while waiting for George and Lizzie, there is a good fire, the whisky is put out on the sideboard and I have Dopper to keep me company.
I had a good journey and the trains were punctual. Tell Judy the luncheon in the train was most recherché. Soup, Crême Windsor, Fish Halibut, Roast Turkey & Sausage, Fig Pudding, Cheese &c. I took every course so you can imagine I was quite ready to miss tea and have since had a good supper at Rosway.
I found Frank about as I expected, much altered, very weak and unable to talk much, I did not stay upstairs long as he soon gets tired even of hearing people talk, I shall of course go over again to-morrow.
Norah is laid up in bed since Monday with influenza and general tiredness, the rest will be good for her.
There is a p.c. from Arthur here saying he can put me up Sunday night so I shall get to Peak Hill in time for dinner and spend the rest of the day there, A. will be there in the afternoon so we can return to Paddington together.
I shall not be down till tea time on Monday at Badsey, but should arrive at Evesham 12.30 I must try and go up to that P.L. meeting in the evening.
I hope Ethel’s cold is better she ought to nurse it up on Sunday.
Much love from
Your affectionate Husband
