My dearest Wife,

I was glad to have your letter and now tea is over I will answer it before post time, it is a little inclined to rain so not inviting for garden work.  

I hope you found them all well at Richmond, did you find May at home and if so did you fix up a time for her visit.

You are having quite a gala day I think, doing the hospital and then dining in London and finishing up with the theatre.  I wonder what piece you are going to see.

Burlingham’s man did the grates yesterday, now the school room is spring cleaned and they are on with the back kitchen.

Judy made some buns to-day and I ate three to show my appreciation! she seems quite happy.

Yesterday evening I went up to the Masonic Lodge but did not stay to the supper, by and bye I must go to the annual meeting of the Parish Conservative Association at the Wheatsheaf, I must get my letter to May written after that, as it is my week, she writes that they had an excellent journey and that we may expect her on 20th, it was just a p.c. to Ethel.

I enclose a letter received from Miss Savory, she sends a cheque for 5/- will you endorse it on the back and return when you next write.

Cyril took Judy for a cycle ride this afternoon out Honeybourne way, they rode nearly 13 miles.

I am sorry Fanny could not get over, have you heard anything of Aunt Lizzie she was contemplating a visit to London early next week. 

The boiler work at the brewery is progressing but I doubt if it will be finished much (if any) before the end of next week.

Did you get a suitable present for Kath the other day.  I hope Arthur’s bicycle has been delivered, Cyril sent it off yesterday by the evening train.

Much love to you, dear, and to the “town house” circle.

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
