My dearest Wife,

Your letter came this afternoon as also one from Arthur.  We think you are having quite a gay time at Sydenham.  If they can manage to put me up without much trouble on Monday next I will arrange to come in time for dinner and stay there, no doubt they will keep you at Mottingham till Tuesday, then you could take the 11.55 to Oxford reaching there at 1.35 when Cyril says he could meet you and take you down to his rooms to lunch, you could join me later in the day as I pass Oxford.

Ethel sends her love to Jack and thanks for the donation to the Cross, she will try and write to him in a day or two to make up for the letter he ought to have from you this week.

I went up this evening to the business meeting (annual) of the Primrose League, but got home in fair time, to-morrow Ethel accompanies me to the afternoon meeting at 3.0 and will also stay for the evening as Mrs Rudge has kindly asked us to dinner between times, you were included in the invitation had you been at home.  I will write to you after you get to Mottingham and tell you by what train I hope to get there on Saturday, I propose to leave here on that day by the 12.1 train.

They are getting on with the boiler job but will hardly finish much before the end of the week, however I think our stock of beer which I laid in will about last out.  It has been fairly fine since Saturday when we had very heavy rain, the pruning goes on and is gradually getting within a small compass, Cyril sticks to the pergola manfully – he suggests the thorns stick into him.

Judy was pleased to get Arthur’s letter, she is quite well and jolly.

What did Lizzie think of the new house, I am glad you have seen her.  

It is late so I must close this letter.

Much love to you, dear and to all the circle.

Your affectionate Husband

Julius Sladden
