Decorated with transfer stickers of a fly, beetle and moths [?]. Is well and happy, hopes his family are too. Is 'going to try for the chess compitition [sic]', and Smith says he has 'a chance'. Asks what sort of bird Georgie caught. [James?] Tomlin gave him a moth. Thinks there are 'only more 60 days in the term'. Has 'bought the buterflie [sic] book from Browning' which he was meaning to buy anyway, for thirteen shillings: Newman's British Butterflies and Moths. Is going to write to Georgie soon. Sends love to all.
