Scope and content

Thanks his mother for her letter. They went last Wednesday 'to see another magic lantern show' by Mr Bent, with 'dis[s]olving views'; about 'his travels near Damascus and the Prince of Whales's [sic] travels in India, and several photographs of English cathedrals'. The school 'played the Camerons' yesterday, but Robert had sprained his right knee and could not play; it is better now. Wixenford won six-nil. Sends love to all, and asks if his mother can send him some envelopes. Had breakfast with Mrs Arnold last week.
