St. JOSEPH’S COLLEGE
NAINI TAL.
[underlined] 25.11.34 [/underlined]
My darling Mummy and Daddy.
Thanks awfully for your letter. I made a mistake about the football. My class lost against the XB 3-1, and the XB beat Steve’s class 1-0. Please let us know wether [sic] to send you a list or not. We have been having Mechanics papers the last two days and tonight we will do the July paper. I will let you [deleted] indecipherable word [/deleted] know what I get. I am getting on well in music now. I have learnt four pieces and am on my fifth and I have learnt four duets. I am revising everything now so you need not worry about my working. There are only ten days left for the exam. The cambridge picnic is on the 31st of [deleted] this [/deleted] [inserted] next [/inserted] month. It is not very cold now. Certainly nothing like Darjeeling. The winter line is beautifully clear now a days [sic]. Do you remember seeing it when you were here? It is a big circular horizon [deleted] [undecipherable] [/deleted] below which [deleted] in [/deleted] everything is a dark blue hue.

[page break]

Is there still water on the tennis court? I hope not as it will need some time to get into shape. I am playing for my class in the Individual championship. Two boys from each class enter for singles and two pairs of doubles. I am playing in both. I play one of Steve’s chums. He is very good indeed. But I will play my hardest against him. There are cups for the winners. What a shame that creeper was spoilt. I hope the Garden turns out as good as usual. Especially the sweet peas, [underlined] and ordinary peas [/underlined]. No more news today, with lots of love and kisses God bless and keep you both for us
your loving son [underlined] David [/underlined].
