Scope and content

[On mourning paper for 8 Grosvenor Crescent, S.W.]:- Thanks his mother for her letter and the autographs. Only came fourth [in his form] last fortnight; thinks this is mainly because he 'did a bad fair-copy-noter', since he was top both times in the marks. Is getting on well this fortnight, and is 'top by 20 marks during the first week's questions'. a 'good start'.

Had a drawing exercise yesterday evening, in which they had to illustrate the Homer for this term; Robert 'can not draw in the very least' so does not think his illustrations were a 'great success'. 'Bossy's form' is 'about the least unclassical in the school', since Bossy [Reginald Bosworth Smith?] 'cares so much about History and Geography and subjects of that sort', so things are 'rather more difficult' for Robert.

They [he and Charlie?] are 'going to tea again tonight with old [J. W.?] Cunningham' [see also 101/137]. Trials are 'coming on soon', so Robert will have to work hard. Hopes his father is well. Is writing to Mr Arnold today. Was very hot today; thinks they will have more hot weather soon.
