Scope and content

40 Ennismore Gardens, S.W. - Wanted to visit Bobbie [at school] this week, but since it is Ascot races thinks it will be best to avoid that railway line until next week. Sorry there is whooping cough at the other school, which she expects is Mr Moreton's. Will bring him a pair of cricket shoes; supposes he wants them to have spikes. Asks if he can swim better this year: he should learn to if it does not tire him. It is 'very hot & dusty' in London, but is sure the butterflies are enjoying the weather. Bob's butterfly book has 'come home very nicely bound'; asks whether he wants it at school. Georgie sends his love; she is reading to him about Croesus, which he is enjoying.
