I quite forgot to tell you [inserted] that [/inserted] we went to [deleted] the tell [/deleted] the dentist to get our teeth seen to some time ago, he said there was nothing wrong with my teeth and said I kept them very clean so I had nothing done to me. But poor Stevie he had two out and two filled and has to go again this tuesday. We played the the [sic] odd numbers yesterday and beat them by an innings and 46 runs, Mr Hiche Apear played we had a master called Mr Rudra playing so we beat them, and we lost against the military we would have beaten them if this master had played but the rector would not alow [sic] him. Mr [deleted] Ru [/deleted] Coombes came back in time for the match. The days are going very fast. quickly. Yesterday Stevie went to a dio [?] concert I did not go because my leave was stopped and I don’t know who stopped it. We are having the house matches from tomorrow.
