Scope and content

Thanks his mother for her letter. Gives the scores for a school cricket match against Mortimer yesterday, in which they were beaten; most of the Wixenford boys 'were ill during the last innings', and were all ill on the journey home and most during the night, though he and G[eorgie] are all right now. There is a match at Wixenford on the 24th against Hartley Row. Comments on the 'very good photograph of Spider'. Has received a letter from Archie, who has been unwell but has just gone back to Charterhouse. Bathing is beginning now. Is very glad that Molly has come back. 'Account all right'. Adds a postscript noting how hot the weather is; is 'glad Papa likes it, and is quite well'; the beginning of a request for his mother to send something is crossed through.
