St Joseph’s were 211 for side out first ins and we were 146 for side out for 2ndins they were 239 for 4 wickets and they retired and we were 31 for side out a bad beating. Nicol is still my best friend. Yesterday some [three deleted letters] people called the royal bergereers [sic] gave a band concert and it was topping. Our school is giving [deleted] the [/deleted] a gym display on the 6th of June in aid of the school chapel fund. We met two men a few days ago their names are Mr. John Gregory and Mr. Simeon.

I am ending now with love from your loving son David.
