Scope and content

Hopes they will begin football in a few days. Miss Bartlett says Georgie's boots fit him; both Georgie and Robert are 'getting on very well'. Mr A[rnold] lent Robert a book called The Myths of Hellas which is 'very interesting'. Georgie is still going to bed late and 'seems very well'. They have finished Iphigenia [by Euripides?]; does not know what they will study next but perhaps Homer. The weather has been 'very fine and pretty hot' today. Does not much matter about his shoes now as football will start soon, but they ought to be found for next year. The [general] 'election will be exciting'; hopes 'we [the Liberals] will get in'. Work with Mr Arnold is 'rather harder', but not as bad as Robert thought it would be; Arnold is 'not always so baity as he used to be'.
