Scope and content

Is sorry his mother is unwell; glad it is not serious. A boy called Weston wants to swap butterflies with him; asks if she thinks any would break if she brought his box from home when she comes. Is glad Charlie 'has got those eggs' [also a reference to butterfly collecting?]. The school began bathing on Thursday and the weather is 'beautifully fine'. Adds a postscript saying that he has not caught any butterflies yet, but has a 'Gold tail moth caterpillar'. Hopes his father, Aunt Margaret, and Georgie are well. Has got enough medicine, but Miss Bartlett said his mother might as well bring another 'bottle of Pancraticus, not the milky stuff'.
