My darling Daddy.

Thanks for your letter. It is getting very cold now. We went out to Mummy yesterday and today. I got my leave back for speaking well in the debate. I had to make my speech up in two minutes. We went for a ride yesterday & today. I rode a racehorse today and controlled it well. Mummy saw me on it. The whole school is going to the pictures this Saturday to see “All quiet on the Western Front.” It is supposed to be very good. The new Rector Mr. Goddard
