Dearest Aunt Margaret, as usual I have been dreadfully slouch about writing, without much excuse either, I am afraid that it is the summer half at Eton. The fact of the matter is I have almost given up cricket...typers of bumble puppy and archery -- greatly to the scandal of Martens and to a large extend boys. Nevertheless it's much more amusing than the monotony of cricket every day -- and Michael still remains to carry on the family traditions regarding cricket colors. I get a good deal more..in particular I enjoyed that book of "Essays on Rebellion" on Newmason, which you gave me last half. They put things extraordinarily dearly, and provide me moreover with a lot of useful stuff for my weekly French essay, at times. The library of Trinity looks very attractive in the little permit you sent. I would like to be able to step into George's last rooms, and he is moving into some of the best in the College, I gather, previously inhabited by Thackeray and Macaulay --- and I shall get those at the beginning of my second year. Give my love to grandfather, who I hope is doing well. Your affectionately Peter.
