Scope and content

Wixenford, Eversley, Winchfield:- Is sure she will be sorry to hear that 'little Tom Booth' is 'suffering from "ringworm"', which will prevent his return to school this term. Mrs Arnold believes that Tom caught it during the holidays; however, since Dr. Sivering [?], who has been consulted, thinks that from 'the present state of the malady' it is possible that it before Tom left school at the end of last term. They cannot therefore 'feel happy' until they hear all the boys are 'safe & well', and 'feel particularly anxious about Bobbie', since he shares a bedroom with Tom. They have been told that this 'unpleasant malady' can go without discovery for some time, as it does not cause pain or discomfort and is 'often in the head & hidden by the hair'. They hope Mrs Trevelyan will be able to reassure them that Bobbie is safe and well, and that they will 'have the pleasure of welcoming him back' on the 13th. She and Mr Arnold send 'kind regards' to Mrs Trevelyan, and love to Bobbie.
