Scope and content
Is very glad that his mother can come next Tuesday, when he will have 'nothing to do'. The examinations start tomorrow; at first they are not too hard, with only natural science tomorrow. Is not doing much now, as 'it is no good working too hard just before'. Would very much like to see Macbeth [the Irving/Terry production at the Lyceum?], especially if they can 'all go together'.
Will be 'very glad to get home' as sports are 'not very interesting unless you yourself take part in them. Does not think Charlie means to do much sport, but he is 'practicing up in gymnastics, for his house will be champion house'. Is pleased they [the Liberals] won the Kennington [by-]election, and hopes they will also win the next two [Gorton and Enfield?]; they 'seem to be going uphill'.
It is good that Bathgate found the books [at Wallington?] as Robert will want them, 'especially next holidays'. Sends love to his father.
