Scope and content

Thanks his mother for her letter. Is 'glad there is nothing much the matter with Spider'. There 'are two Wilsons [at the school] and a Mayne, there is no Miles but there is a Syel coming next term'. Sends love to all. Will 'try and settle to work steadily'. It rained today and they could not go to church. 'Alexander and Fleming have gone and it is a good riddance of bad rubbish'. Adds a postscript asking if his mother can send him a scarf and his chess board.
