My dearest wife

Just a line to enclose Boo’s letter which arrived this morning and which it was very nice to receive. I think it was most probably posted at Gibraltar. It is fine this morning but was very wet yesterday. There was some rain late on Saturday and early on Sunday morning, it was very heavy, accompanied by thunder which lasted on and off most of the day, with dry intervals. It was too wet between 5 and 8 to permit of people seeing the roses, just a few children put in an appearance. We had to send for a conveyance to take Mela up to Evesham as we could not get a trap in Badsey and it was out of the question for her to walk. She took the day easily and in the morning, during a fine interval, sat outside to write to Cyril; she sent her special love to you. Guy Haynes and his brother Hugh called in the early afternoon but could not stay to tea as they were going elsewhere, but we had ”CAB” into tea as he wanted some more “Land and Water” papers. We are getting on all right and Charlotte makes herself quite happy during the day doing little jobs. We shall be interested to hear soon of your doings and hope you are having fair weather.

Much love, dear.

Your affectionate husband
Julius Sladden
