My dear Juliet

Although I hope to be with you on Friday, I must write just a few lines on the important event of your coming of age, for you to receive on Wednesday morning when all my kind thoughts and wishes will be with you. May you have many years of happy and useful life in store for you. Your dear Mother would have rejoiced much had she been spared, to see this day which synchronises so appropriately with an era of peace. I should like you to regard the present I send you herewith not only as a gift from myself but as one associated with her ever dear memory. I understand the stones in the pendant are aquamarines and I hope you will like it and the attached chain.

Ethel is busy packing up for her start tomorrow. She has heard from Aunt Lizzie who will be pleased to see you at Eastbourne next week. Norah has gone into the nursing home today to get ready for the operation next Thursday, there was no vacancy in the Cottage Hospital at present and it seemed a pity to keep her waiting any longer. I do hope she will eventually be much better for submitting to it.

I have some other letters to write so will leave Ethel to give you all the home news by word of mouth.

With much love to you all.

I remain

Ever your affectionate Father

Julius Sladden
