Eliza [Tabor] to her husband

Scope and Content

From Malvern to India. Told Mr Gregory Smith that John's leave would not start until Nov [1885] and he might visit Burmah and Ceylon on way home, and not be in England until Feb [1886]. Trouble in meeting Mabel and Noel on their return (from Peterborough) as Mabel had forgotten what she had been told and was not on the station when Eliza arrived. Much hurt by some letters which give the impression that John has no affection for her, but only for his first wife. Has had silver Cashmere lockets which he sent to Lilian and Mabel made up with their mother's portrait and hair.
