My own Darling Daddy.

Thanks ever so much for your letter and all the news. Many happy returns of the day. [Deleted word] God bless and keep you for us. So Bill got the better of the fight. Its very surprising as the other dog is so much heavier. I am glad to hear you are nearly settled down now. Steve is being careful of his arm. He is playing cricket but not hockey or foot-ball. The rains have broken at last. We have nothing but rain now. We are going to the convent concert tomorrow. Our B beat P.S.C. B 2-1 last saturday. This saturday our A plays the “Reserve Police”. The matches of this tournament are league. Monday was a holiday for Brother Connelly’s feast. We went out with Mummy on Sunday and

and went through Government house grounds. We also went skating. Mummy came to see us this evening and then went to the convent concert. At present we are having [inserted] an [/inserted] interclass foot-ball tournament. Each [deleted word] class entering an A and B team. So far my class has won all its matches A & B. I play for the A and am Captain of the B. That is my class A and B. [deleted word] Swimming is quite enjoyable now as the water is much warmer. My class played the VII in the cricket tournament and beat them by 7 runs even though our Captain was not playing. I only made 9 runs and was then caught. Just as I was getting set. No more news today [deleted word] God bless & keep you for us with lots of love and

kisses from your

loving son

[underlined] David. [/underlined]
