Scope and content

Trin[ity] Coll[ege], Camb[ridge]. - Hopes Marsh is 'flourishing'; envies any one who is 'out of this dirty hole'. Can do what Marsh likes on Friday, although he thinks 'there is a dentist-fly somewhere hidden in the pot of oin[t]ment, as John Morley would say'. They have begun exams: he has done 'hopelessly in the Greek Trans[lation] but fairly in the Latin Prose'. [John] Barran 'seems satisfield'; [Robert?] Kitson was 'remarkably lively at Commons'. Bob thought of giving everything up and 'running to hide in the North' after the paper this morning, but 'public opinion was too strong'; the 'Rochester Pet quite beats the Hexham Slasher'.
