Scope and content

[On headed notepaper for Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland]: - Thanks his father for his letter. Also read his father's letter to Charlie and 'was very interested in it'; thinks when he grows up and has 'read all about it' he will 'enjoy it very much'. He and Charlie went to 'tea with Mr Howson on Sunday', and he 'saw Agnes there, for the first time' [E. W. Howson had recently married Agnes Butler]; they were 'both very interesting'. Thinks Charlie is nearly well now, and usually 'goes down to footer'; Robert is enjoying it very much. His house is not as bad this year as it used to be at footer, as they were 'only just beaten by Weldon's in the house-match'. Has had 'several more verses sent up', he thinks seven altogether. Temple, the Bishop of London, preached on Sunday. Is going to 'try hard to come out first' in one of the remaining fortnights this term, at least 'never to be lower than third'. Was not as low in French, but must try to do better still. Thinks he will 'certainly be higher in tells [?]' though is not sure where.
