Letter from Arthur to Peter, 14 June 1906


12, Beaumont Street,

June 14. 1906.

My dearest Peter,
It is your turn for a letter today, and I am sure you deserve an answer after the very good letters which you have written to me.
I live here in great splendour with two doctors, several nurses, a wife, and many kind friends all looking after me. (I do not mean that the doctors and nurses and friends give all their time to me, but they will help me very much). I wish you could see the splendid flowers that people have sent here – finer even than our garden at Berkhamsted.
All the letters which I get seem to tell me very well what is going on while I am away. I do hope the cavies will not escape and get drowned in the canal without me to look after them. It will be very exciting for me to hear what happens in the great Sibdon match on Saturday, and also to hear what all your places are for this week at school. I am sure you are all trying to do your best, and you certainly have very good people to help you with your prep.
Mr Barrie is now sitting here with me reading the newspaper, and Mother has gone for a little drive in the motor with Mrs Barrie. Don’t you think Mr. Barrie is a very good friend to all of us?
Goodbye now, my dear Peter and all my dear boys. I don’t forget whose birthday it is on Saturday.
Your affectionate father.

[AB: Peter makes no comment on this letter. Cavies = a kind of guinea-pig]
