Scope and content
On headed notepaper for the Harrow Philathletic Club, with 'The Grove, Harrow' added in Robert Trevelyan's hand:- Thanks her for the money, which will keep him going 'for some time'; has given G[eorgie] his share. Georgie's place [in his form] was 'very satisfactory'.
Has 'at last' stopped raining; hopes the weather will stay fine. Has broken the [Harrow] Philathletic Club's ivory paper knife and must get another; proposes doing so from the money he has in the Post Office bank. Does not know how much it will cost, but expects about a pound. Asks if she could get him a replacement and suggests sending the broken one in the post so she can see it; then wonders if it would be better to wait until she visits and he can show it to her.
Hopes they [the Liberal Party] will 'win North Bucks' [the Buckingham by-election being held that day]. Cannot think of a book [for a birthday present?], except perhaps a translation of Don Quixote [originally written as Don Quichotte], which he has been reading parts of recently. Is 'getting on well with the prose [composition]'.
