Scope and content

Thanks his mother for her letter. Has got a letter from Archie, who at first did not like [his new school?] much but 'says he likes it better now'; is going to reply today. Promises not to 'pull my eyes'. Hopes Aunt Meggie [Price] is better. Asks if his mother can send him some stamps. Is in the same room as before, with the same boys. Has nearly finished Marmion [by Sir Walter Scott]. Notes in a postscript that the new boys are Isaac mi[nor], Carnegie, Thomson, Lennox, and Clerk.
