St. PAUL’S SCHOOL,
JALAPAHAR,
DARJEELING,
9.10.32…….1932.

My darling Mummy.
Thank you for your letter and the sawwas [sic]. I have got you another 7 pictures, I could not get another one you did not have, but I will try and get you [deleted] on [/deleted] some more when the new stock arrives. You will soon be able to finish your book, you have only got 27 left to finish it. I will try very hard in class. We have not got our Divinity and Physics exam, marks as yet I think I have done well in both of them. We went to the school concert on Thursday, it was very good indeed. The name of it, was the Fourth Wall. The scouts camp begins tomorrow, we are leaving by the 7 o clock morning train. I went and saw the D.D.S heats yesterday. Stevie was made to run in the under 14. He saw in the 100 yds, & and the 220 yds. He came 4 [underlined] th [/underlined] in both of them, and the first three were taken.

[page break]

In the heats of my class I have come in for the 100 yds, 220 yds, 440 yds and the obidicle [sic] race but I have very little chance. In the 1 [underlined] ST [/underlined] Class, throwing the cricket ball a few throws were thrown in the mist.
One of the boys through the ball very high and they all shouted heads, so I saw for about 15 yds and then the ball fell on my head. It fell on my head before falling on the ground, it nearly knocked me out but I managed to stick it. I am quite alright now. I am ending now with lots of love and kisses from your loving son
[underlined] David [/underlined]
