Scope and content

[On headed notepaper for Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland]: - Heard from Mr Bowen that she was planning to come down 'if it was fine to see the torpids'; is glad that she did not as it was so windy they were put off till next Saturday. There are 'no absits this term, at least at the beginning' so they [he and Charlie] could not come on Saturday. Charlie 'seems very well now', though Robert is 'not a very good judge of that sort of thing'; he had a headache last Sunday but Robert thinks he is better now. Has been 'out running twice', and much enjoyed it. Mr Bowen asked him to send the enclosed paper [no longer present] to her and his father: it is about the football, and some of it is 'very good'. Is glad to hear about the election they [the Liberals] have won, and hopes they will win the rest. Adds a postscript saying that he is reading [The Count of] Monte Cristo, 'but not so as to interfere with my work'.
