My darling Daddy.

Thanks for your letter.

The 2nd XI played St Josephs [sic] again and this time we beat them 2-1. That made the points 7-7. The [deleted] [undecipherable] [/deleted] 2nd XI went to the pictures and we got a whole holiday. Stevie and I both played forwards this time. But yesterday our 1st XI lost against them 2-0 and they won the cup again. The rain spoilt the game for us. I go [sic] 78 in English and came 3rd.
We saw Mummy yesterday and today and had a good time. Yes we will take care of Mummy and not let her get ill again. We went for a ride today, and are getting nearly as good as jockeys now, I can control any horse in the stables
[page break]
now. The weather is very bad at present and it does nothing but rain the whole day long. We are starting tomorrow, and the football houses matches will take place at the end of the year. I am glad to hear everything is alright at home. With lots of love and Kisses from your loving son [deleted] Da [/deleted]
[underlined] David. [/underlined]
