My darling Daddy.
Thank you for your letter. There was only one boy of my weight, and besides I was going to give an exibition [sic] fight, but was not allowed to because of my thumb. The Armenian boys have left.
We had a half holiday on friday because [inserted] we [/inserted] were out of quarantine on thursday, and a whole holiday yesterday because it was the last saterday [sic].
I am getting two [indecipherable word] printed and Mummy will send them on to you, our photo album is getting on well. I got only 28 marks for History, the master marked very stiffly, only 4 boys got above 40 the rest 40 and below. [inserted] The highest being 66 [/inserted]. If you write one letter to both of us it will be quite alright [sic]. My house 1. [underlined] ST [/underlined] eleven beat Hastings house 1.[underlined] ST [/underlined] eleven

[page break]

I played in the second eleven, we beat Clive, that is Stevies house and lost against Lawrence, I howled. We would have beaten them had it not been for one of their [deleted] men [/deleted] boys who made 56, and would have been out before he had made 10, an easy catch came to Stephens, that is Uncle Marhaks son, but another boy ran into him when he was waiting to catche [sic] it it [sic]. I caught [deleted] ed [/deleted] two boys, and bowled 2, and one boy was caught off my bowling.
I am ending now with lots of love and Kisses, from your loving son David. [underlined] [/underlined]
