Scope and content

[On headed notepaper for 40 Ennismore Gardens, SW]. Thanks his mother for her letter, and asks her to thank his father for his. The school beat Mortimer one-nil, with Holt ma[jor] getting the goal. It was 'raining leaves as well as rain' during the match, and the 'ground was one mass of mud' and very slippery. By the end they were 'all covered with a thick coating of mud from head to foot' and he does not think their flannels will ever get clean; wishes Booa [Mary Prestwich] could have seen his new shirt. Grandpapa [Sir Charles Trevelyan or Robert Needham Philips] has sent him and Georgie a pound each, and they have both thanked him. Georgie has had a 'slight cold'. Adds a postscript asking if his mother knows whether [Nugent?] Hicks 'has got his dubble[sic]'.
