Bereik en inhoud

[On headed notepaper for Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland]: - Thanks his mother for her letter. Is sorry that he has not written earlier; has been working hard this fortnight to 'come out high' in his form. Charlie has 'done very well' and come twelfth, gaining a place. Robert won the 'carrying race', mainly as he was drawn with Stephenson, who is 'nearly the lightest' in their house; they each get two shillings. Thinks he also gets something for being third in the half mile, but is not sure. Came first in his heat 'for the small house hundreds', but has 'no chance in the final'.

Supposes Georgie will be 'coming home on the Friday'. Asks if they will stay in London from 'the Tuesday to the Thursday'. Will try to keep his place for the last remaining week, but it will 'not count much'. Vanity [A. G. Watson] is going to Greece tomorrow, so Moss and Owen will take Robert's form; Lascelles is taking Watson's house.

Is glad his father is 'so well'. Thinks they will have 'a very happy holidays'. Hallam saw Robert today and said that he should 'go in for the Latin Epigrams [prize]'. Will have to talk to his father about it in the holidays, since it is a 'very important prize' and he should not enter it unless he can 'do a really good epigram'. Will have all holiday to consider it.
