My dearest Wife,

In case I should be pressed for time before post to-morrow I will write a few lines, for you to receive on your birthday, while I have leisure this evening but as you will be seeing Ethel before you receive this I shall leave most of the general news for her to relate.

Many happy returns of the day dear wife and I am so thankful that you seem so much better and stronger than you were earlier in the year and indeed, I think twelve months ago, now you must take care not to overdo it and especially to avoid taking cold.

I wonder if Polly will be able to go to Harlesden with you, anyway you will have Ethel to take care of you, I shall think of you all on Wednesday evening and especially of our dear little girl to whom I must write for the occasion.

We have had sharp white frosts here and a particularly raw cold wind, nearly north, this evening it is milder with a little sleet and rain.  I have been writing to George this evening and to Charlotte also, I see your letters this week should be to Jack and Kathleen.

I have received £10 from Mr Eyres Monsell for the Recreation Ground of course it is a nice donation but I had hoped it might be double! However it will enable us to open a bank account forthwith.

Much love to you dear and all good wishes from your affectionate Husband.

Julius Sladden

My love to Polly.

Monday 5.30 P.M.
Glad to have your letter.  I am getting a clock for your bedroom as a birthday present and hope to have it in good going order for you on your return.

Much milder to-day.
