Dear Mum [symbol] Dad,
Thank you very much for letter which I received this morning. We are going to start school on Monday next.
We had the list of our new books this morning and I shall need a lot of books from home such as ian Actas [sic]. Shall I buy any books from Symonds? as he said that I could have some of his. I might need my bathing costume as we are going to the baths on some of the afternoons. We went to the pictures on Wed. night I am just going to write to Grandpa [symbol] Grandma Johns
Love from George.
