A pork pie and smallpox

I arrived here alright and at Malton who should get into the same carriage but Mr Kempthorne and Mrs etc. I lost them at York when I ate half my pork pie but I had to change carriage again at Doncaster and get into the carriage again from there. I sat next to a chap....

... who had only just recovered from smallpox until I got to London.

I have been promoted into the first form and shall most likely want a lot of books sending. I have just written to Bob Whitworth.

The work is much harder in the first form than the second, I have nothing else to say so believe me your affectionate son.

PS please can you send me some 1/2d stamps
