Scope and content

Asks her to forward his letters at once to the Marine College, Essex. Explains that they have been sent to Rugby, because he has 'a servant who thinks for himself...' States that he has been at his present address since the previous Wednesday. Thinks that he must give up the idea of going to Rugby. Explains that he has many visits to pay in July, and that, until his fever subsides he dreads railway travelling. Asks her to write and tell him about what she and the others are going to do in the holidays, and when she intends to leave Rugby. Promises that he shall try to come, 'at least for a night or two, before that.'
