My dear Mother

A very happy Easter to you. I thought I must send you just a short Easter letter though I wrote so lately there is not much more to say.

I hope things are going on well & smooth in the parish & that you will have nice Easter services.

I cannot tell you where to think of me as spending Easter, but it may be at New Plymouth. We have just time to get our clothes washed up & necessary mendings which always crop up, done before starting up North. I don’t suppose we shall enjoy the scenery up there so much as down South, nor shall we get the bracing air – Napier & Rotorua Auckland & New Plymouth are I believe all more or less relaxing, still there is a great deal of interest to see & I am looking forward to Auckland especially & hope to see Miss Laird.

The air on the West Coast of the South Island was delightfully bracing & invigorating, especially when one got high up.

Much love from your loving daughter

May E Sladden
