My dear Ethel

I thought I would write a short letter to you this week, and inclose another to be forwarded to Mother when you are next writing to her. I have got to go with W. A. Davies to Cheltenham for the Practical Mechanics and Physics exam in the Higher Certificate, next Friday. We shall go on Thursday afternoon and stop the night as before at Tate’s Hotel. The exams are each 3 hours long, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We return by the evening train from there, getting back here again by the last train from Hereford, which gets in at 9.45. If as last year they fix the afternoon exam at 2.30 to 5.30, we may have some difficulty in catching the train; I forgot exactly what time it starts, but I know we came out a little early last time and had rather a rush. If we miss it I think I shall trot or sand paper but something intermediate

yours trooly

C. E. Sladden

P.S. You may read Mother’s letter if you are good.
