Sept 16th/99

My dear Kathleen

I am sending you the things you asked for.

We got your first p.c. this morning & the other this afternoon.  

I am sorry Ethel is not in div: I, but I am glad she & Mary Knipe will be together.  I am afraid you won’t like your bed-room very much.  Mother thinks Ethel might ask Sister why she is not put up.

We began school yesterday.  I think they are all glad to begin, they are quite interested about the exam, Lily especially so because as she told me “your friend told me that going in for exams is very jolly”.  We seem quite our ordinary term party only of course Dip is still here.  As Father says he is like a sparrow alone upon the house-top.

Mother had a letter from Emily yesterday, she wrote as if she had enjoyed her visit & said we had all spoilt her.  Mother sends her love to you both.

Goodbye, much love from

May E Sladden

We shall look out for your letter on Monday afternoon.
