My dear Kathleen
I have just got your p.c., I suppose I shall have to give up going to Bancrofts on May 3rd & come to you that week-end. Mary had suggested this morning going with me there. I hope the boys won’t be very disappointed. Of course if you found it possible after all to get me a room next Sat in time to let me know, I would come then if not don’t bother & I will give up Bancrofts & come May 3rd.
Wednesday I did not finish this yesterday as I went out & I thought there was no hurry.
Ethel & I had a nice day at Windsor on Monday we got there in plenty of time for prayers. Everybody was very nice & seemed pleased to see us, including Miss Stoker who came up to us in the hall & was most affable, but she looks no more like a head mistress than you do, or perhaps rather less. We had a long talk with Sister M.S. & one with Sister Miriam.
Ethel had tea with Miss Cave & I with Kitty & Agnes in Kitty’s room. We saw the result of Ruth’s exam in the paper when we got back here, they had not seen it at Clewer. I think she has done wonderfully considering how ill she was. Sister Miriam told she did nothing the second day & did not finish any of her papers.
Ethel is going home this afternoon by the 4.45 from Paddington. I am glad Mother will have her back, I am afraid you must have been very busy without either of us.
It is such a warm day today, quite summer-like.
We enjoyed the concert last night very much indeed, Ethel was very glad she stayed for it. Anna & I are going over to Strawberry Hill when we have seen Ethel off. I have not seen Edwin & Eleanor yet. Miss Johnson goes tomorrow so we shall be a smaller party soon.
Have you heard that Miss Smith & Miss White have booked their passage home on June 19th. Sister Miriam showed us a photo of Miss Smith’s sitting-room.
Let me know about coming, if I don’t hear of course I shall come May 3rd.
With much love from
your loving sister
May E Sladden
