Scope and content

Postmarked Harrow; addressed to his mother at 8 Grosvenor Crescent, London S. W. - Is sorry to have to tell her that his 'absit has been stopped'. Does not think his offence has been 'very great', but does not have time to tell her everything now; will write tomorrow. Charlie, 'who ought to be a good judge', is not angry with him at all, and 'Mr Bowen himself did not seem to think it very serious'. However, Robert accepts that he 'was to blame to some extent'. The 'row is with Mr Owen'. He is getting on very well in other respects. Hallam is ill. Will 'send the verses tomorrow'.
