Scope and content

On headed notepaper for the Harrow Philathletic Club, with 'The Grove' added in Robert Trevelyan's hand:- Is 'quite well', as is Georgie, who 'seems to be doing well with Hallam, and has got through all his cons[?]'. Robert is 'getting on all right' with his work, and is studying with Moss again. Read in Chapel yesterday, and 'did not mind it so much as usual, or make so many mistakes'.

They [the Liberal Party] 'seem to be doing badly in the elections', though they are not all over. Asks if there is 'any truth in the report that there will be a general election next holidays'. Hopes Charlie is well, and 'has been successful in his criticisms of the budget'.

His difficulties with the [school news-] 'paper are over', and he has persuaded 'the party that was anxious to go on that it is absolutely impossible to go on unless a work of genious [sic] appears', which, he 'conceive[s] to be impossible'. Therefore, she need not fear it taking up 'so much' of Robert's time. Asks if there is a copy of Mill's [Considerations] on Representative Government at home; he is studying it with Bowen, and would like a copy with 'fairly big print'. If not, he can 'easily order one'. Georgie 'likes his history very much'.
