Scope and content
On headed notepaper for the Harrow Philathletic Club, with 'The Grove' added in Robert Trevelyan's hand:- Thanks her for her letter; 'quite agree[s]... about Georgie's remove', and does not see why he was passed over since he was 'left top last term'. Does not think it will do Georgie 'much harm, as this is a short term, and he will not lose any places eventually, if he comes out top'.
Is 'very glad about Hartlepool' [a Liberal by-election gain], and hopes 'things will go well in the house'. They have 'had some skating' here, but Robert did 'not care for it very much'; they have 'begun footer now, and there will be three matches'. Robert has got the new flannels, and thinks they are good enough, but 'fear[s] they will be another long bill'. He gave Jane 1.10 to buy 'umbrellas and braces and a few other things, as it will come to the same thing', so he will need money sooner than he thought, but not yet. Mrs Dimgate [?] has arranged his 'room during the holidays very satisfactorily.
Has 'very little news', since not much is going on. Asks whether Sophie is 'better, or out of bed yet?'. Had a 'very pleasant time with Miss Martin', and went to the National Gallery; there are 'two new pictures'.
