Scope and content

[on mourning notepaper]:- Is glad to hear from her last letter that Aunt Annie is better; hopes they will soon come back to England. At school, they have 'done about half of [their] trials [exams], and most of the difficult ones'.

Hopes his father's 'tour in Cornwall was successful'. It has been raining very heavily, including one thunderstorm which made 'the greatest downpour [he has] ever seen'. Is 'sorry to say' that Hughy Butler has been caught smoking, and is 'now in the Lower Sixth'; his father is 'very unhappy, and talks of taking him away'. Is afraid Hughy 'will be in a worse row by the end of the term'. A subscription is being got up for Miss Bartlett [the school matron at Wixenford?] and he wants to get photographs of the boys who are leaving, so will need some more money. Hopes she 'will not think [him] expensive', but he had not factored in these expense and thought he would have enough.

Georgie is well; Robert does not think he has had his 'quarter-marks' yet. They 'forgot to take back the story of Benyon the substitute'.
