Scope and content

On headed notepaper for Trinity College, Cambridge:- Had a 'very good journey', and is here with all his belongings. Is well, but has 'not got into [his] work thoroughly yet'. Everybody is now here, but there is no real news. Is 'probably coming to town on Monday', but will not stay the night. Hopes his father is well, and 'that the councils of the nation are prospering'. Is 'glad that Mr Gladstone has put his foot down on Pharaoh, so that even the Tories have to applaud'. Leaburn[?] is well, and [Eddie] Marsh will go to him next term. Will write a 'longer and more respectable letter next Sunday'.
