My darling Daddy,
Thanks for your letter. Only a month left now. Mr Shelverton might give me one of his Gordon Setter pups. They are Rs. 250 each. He can’t sell any more so he said if it will get a good home he will see about giving me one. They are thouroughbred [sic]. The mother cost Rs. 1,000 to bring from Scotland and [deleted] his [/deleted] [inserted] the [/inserted] father is a champion. I got 50 marks in Divinity. My leave was stopped for talking in Prep. Mummy came and saw me today. I am getting on very well in tennis, (Singles & Doubles) [sic]. Mrs Pelly gave a party yesterday. Some of the Dio & Queenshill came. We drew for partners & by luck I drew Sylvia even if I hadn’t I would have changed for her. The evening was a thorough sucess [sic]. Mr. Bean ran the show & [deleted] [undecipherable] [/deleted] had a

[page break]

treasure hunt. It was altogether a very good show. Cox has invited me to his place this year. It is near Assansole [sic]. In February is the best time. There is a singles & doubles tournament. Cups are the prizes. I [sic] we go he & I are entering for the doubles. We get beautiful days now, we will work very hard. Stevie has passed his trial exams, & will be sitting for the [deleted] juniors [/deleted] S.C.

I am speaking in the debate today & if I speak well tomorrow being a whole holiday Mr Warner is allowing me out.

No more news today with lots
of love & kisses your loving
son [underlined] David [/underlined].
