NAINI TAL
6th July 1936

My own darling Daddy.

Thanks ever so much for your letter and all your news. Now that Mr. Furguson has come back work will be much easier for you. My height is 5 foot 5 inches and my wt. is 9 stine. I don’t know about Steve. Are you really growing half an inch a month?

While playing football the other day I was accidently tripped and fractured a bone in my hand. I went to Ramsay and had it attended to. It is getting on well. [deleted] but [/deleted] There is nothing to worry about. After a couple of months I will be able to play all games but I will not be able to box for a year or so.

Our “A” team played P.S.C “A” yesterday. We have at last broken our unlucky spell. We beat them 4 – 3. The game was a very fine one. The Command “A” and the Band “A”

[page break]

drew 2 – 2 so we are at present standing first in the league. We still however have to play the two best teams.

I actually passed in the French Test with 42. I came 5th out of 9 boys. The French Mistress had corrected three out of the four of my questions and I had got only 22 and she was bluffing herself that I had failed but in the fourth question Composition I got 20 out of 25. The highest marks were 67. Well no more news to-day, God bless & keep you for us. With lots of love and kisses from your loving son
