Scope and content

Thanks his mother for her letter. Bramwell 'fell down the stairs this morning, and he looked so pale' that Robert 'fainted in prayers... and fell down', and Mr Arnold carried him to Miss Bartlett [the matron]'s room; a lot of other boys almost fainted too; Robert recovered in five minutes. Thinks he can manage without his 'buterflie thing [sic] and bat till then', though cricket has started. The new boys are Clive, Mete mi[nor], Holt mi[nor], Davenport and Jameson. Asks his mother if she can send his 'breeding cage', as he has a small Tiger [moth] caterpillar. His cold has almost gone, and he is going out.
