My darling Daddy.

Thank you for your letter. I got 45 marks in Physics, [sic] and from 4th that put [deleted] [undecipherable] [/deleted] me down to 6th. One boy beat me by 4, and another by 14. I came 2nd in Latin with 57. It is the first exam of a new month. I did not go out and see Mummy yesterday, because I had to have a rehearsal for out concert. I asked Mummy to come and see my form concert, last night, and she thouroghly [sic] enjoyed it. I was Head [sic] crook. We [deleted] [undecipherable] [/deleted] went out to Mummy today and had a good time. We also went for a ride. We have got 100 pamphlits [sic] now. We have played three matches this week. We lost 5-1 against the police

[page break]

We won 10-0 against some people from Government house, 5 ladies played, so are [sic] boys took it easy and did not play their hardest. We also played against the Sporting Union and beat them 6-2.

We have saved up Rs10/4 and today my lock was broken and Rs8 stolen. I have reported the matter to Mrs. Cox. I think its [sic] disgraceful, whoever took it, must have no conscience. I am giving all our saved money to Mummy now. It will be safe with her.

There was a drawing exam yesterday and I was in Division 3. It is a London Exam. Haven’t I written a [deleted] n [/deleted] nice long letter? I am ending now with lots of love and Kisses from your loving son David.
