My dearest wife

Your postcard did not turn up till this morning, we were glad to get it. I enclose PC from Aunt Lizzie also a letter from Arthur. We have had such heavy rain early this morning I am afraid it may be wet for the open rose garden by and bye, anyway the ground must be very sticky. Lucy Wheatley was very busy selling rosebuds yesterday for the “parcel” fund at 1d a piece. I think more than 6 dozen were disposed of. We had quite an interesting visit to the wounded at Abbey Manor and Charlotte was very pleased to have a talk with two New Zealanders. They were from Otago district. We may perhaps have them over for tea next Thursday but it is not yet definitely fixed. Mela came last night, she seems bright and well. I must write again soon, but must cut this short to catch the 10.30 post. I expect Judy was very pleased to meet you yesterday. Will she like to go to Folkestone?

Love to Jack and Kath and much for yourself, dear.

Your loving husband
Julius Sladden
