My dearest Wife,
It was very nice to get your letter of 29th on our arrival here, also May’s post card. Do not trouble to post anything after Saturday. We shall probably travel down on Tuesday night by L. & N. W. to B’ham and might turn up quite early on Wednesday if we make the connection.
Your affectionate Husband
I am afraid the diary is very scrappy but it was written in a scrappy manner.
