Scope and content

They have now had all their 'hard trials except one'; thinks he has done well. Came out 'first in quarter marks', but does not yet know by how much. Asks if she as well as his father are 'coming down to Watson's on Saturday'. Only two boys are leaving from their house: one he is 'very sorry is going, the other rather glad'. Thinks Charlie is well. Strutt was 'very ill a few nights ago', but has now recovered; it was probably caused by 'some poison, possibly tinned sardines'. He was 'very bad indeed, and Mr Bowen was frightened'. Hopes Georgie is all right, and that his holidays start near Robert and Charlie's.

There has been a bad fog all morning, which has not yet entirely disappeared. Mr Woodhouse said Robert should come and see him before the end of term or at the beginning of the holidays; supposes he will have time to see him.
