ST. PAUL'S SCHOOL,
JALAPAHAR,
DARJEELING,
6.11.32. 1932.

My darling Daddy.
Thank you for your letter. Please dont worry about me as I am alright again and go to class. Only my ear gives me a little trouble now, and I am going to the Sanatarium [sic] tomorrow and the doctor will have a look at my ear. We had the house box [deleted] y [/deleted] ing yesterday, I did not fight as I am not yet strong enough. My house won the house box [deleted] y [/deleted] ing. The points were as follows, Havelock 29 points, Lawrence 25 points, Clive 9 points, and Hastings 4 points, My house has pulled up to [indecipherable] Hastings, 25 points and to Clive 20 points, so we are only 10 points behind Clive now. But there is still the hockey house matches, and the Fives cup matches.
There are only 20 days left to come home. I came 1. [underlined] ST [/underlined] in the Maths Exam with

[page break]

63 marks, but we have had other tests which count so on the whole I am 3. [underlined[ rd [/underlined], with 66 marks. I sat for my Theory music exam yesterday, I think I have done quite well [deleted] tu [/deleted]. The results will come out in January, when we are at home. Stevie passed in his music exam with 75 marks. I am ending now, with lots of love and
Kisses from your
loving son
David.
