My darling Mummy & Daddy.

Thanks for your letters. I am glad to hear Daddy is nearly O.K. Our school B played the band B. We beat them by 55 runs. I played. I don’t think permanently though. I made 0 1st Inns & 12 second inns 2nd highest score. I caught a good catch 1st Inns. It was quite a good day today after a long time. We are allowed to swim again. Steve has dived from the low board and I have dived from the high board which is over 10 feet. Isn’t that good? Our B drew with the Command A. Our A are playing the Rarayan Club this evening. I saw a lovely airdale yesterday. It was worth Rs 160. It had a fine big head and a beautifully glossy coat. I am so
