My darling Daddy.

Thank you for your letter, and the pamflits [sic], some of them were very good ones. The under 15 XI played St. Josephs and they beat us 4-1 duly to the falt [sic] of our goal keep. Stevie played centreforward [sic] and I played right back. Our forwards could not break through their backs so this wednessday [sic] I am going forwards. Lets [sic] hope we win this time. We should have easily won the game. The first 15 minutes of the game the ball only came on our half once. Last night we saw a piece call [sic] “Head Winds”, it was shown with the school machine, and we enjoyed it. We saw Mummy yesterday and today and had a good time. I have come 5th this month. I know my dorm masters report. It is Jo in charge of the Dorm, and maintains

good discipline. Jo a good lad in himself, and my conduct is very good quite good those two arent [sic] they? Have the trees grown much bigger? We went [deleted] [undecipherable] [/deleted] riding today and enjoyed ourselves. [deleted] At [/deleted]

At present the points for the Rectors Cup between St. Josephs [sic] and us are St. Josephs [sic] 7. St. Pauls [sic] 3. The total number of points amounts to 20 points. 6 marks for each of the two 1st XI matches and 4 marks for each of the two 2nd XI matches.

I am ending now with lots of love and kisses from your loving son.
[underlined] David [/underlined]

P.S. Ask Marcus to carry on collecting pamflits [sic] for us and when we are coming home he can give them to us.
