Scope and content

On headed notepaper for Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland:- Asks her to thank his father for his letter. Will not be long now until the family are all together at Wallington. They are going to lunch with Aunt Nora today, so he does not have much time to write. When she comes, asks her to bring his 'paper battles' if she can find them; thinks they are in a drawer in their room in London. It does not matter much if she cannot find them; no doubt Georgie will 'not forget the soldiers'. Spider is still very well.

Went to Elsdon yesterday, and 'nearly to the Raw' [a fortified pele house nearby]. Usher has asked him to play in a match at Mitford next Saturday, but she and his father have 'thought it best [he] should not play in foreign matches'. Notes, however, that he has 'had no cricket except that one match a long time ago', and no practise as it 'does not begin until dinner time': asks if he could therefore play on Saturday, though he is 'not particularly anxious to'. Is glad Charlie is all right, and that Booa's brother is better. Booa herself is very well.
