Scope and content

On headed notepaper for Harrow Philathletic Club:- Thanks his mother for her letter; would be very pleased for her to come down on Tuesday at the time she mentions. Will remember about the cab. Aunt Meg [Price] has sent him a hamper, which is 'nearly finished now'; is writing to her. Is reading in Chapel today and 'still find[s] it very trying'; will be able to get back to 'House-Supper', though may be half an hour late.

For the moment his chances of getting into the [cricket] eleven 'have dwindled to almost nothing', but still hopes that if he 'stick[s] to it matters may improve'. Hopes to tell her more when he sees her. Does not think he can go for an absit, but G[eorgie] can go next Saturday if he likes, as that is 'the next half-holiday'.
