My Dear Kathleen,
I was very pleased you had secured the Form prize and another for French and congratulate you on your success, now you will soon be in for the Oxford Senior and I wish you all good luck in your various papers and I hope the Latin & German will happen to suit you, we shall think of you next week and shall be glad to hear how you think you have fared when it is all over.
I am glad to hear the roses arrived all right I did not consider the quality extra special and could have sent better this week I think.
Mother arranged to come home to-day instead of Tuesday as it suited Mary who was kind enough to see her & Baby as far as Reading she was to arrive at 7.23 but unfortunately got into the wrong train at Oxford and cannot get to Evesham till 10.4 P.M. Jack and Ethel have gone up to meet her and come down in a fly as it is so late, I hope she will not be too dreadfully tired when she gets here.
Aunt Lottie says she will send you your fare from London so I must send next week enough to take you up there. The 2.35 will get you to Waterloo at 3.42 you must get a transfer porter to take your luggage (2d per parcel) on to the S.E.R. premises, there he will leave it and having taken your ticket at the little window close by you must get a S.E.R. porter to label and put your things in the train and as the fast train (Charing Cross 4.30) does not stop at Waterloo you had better in the first place back to Cannon St and there re-book and await this train there 4.36 you are due at Folkestone Central 6.27 mind and book and see you luggage labelled Folkestone Central.
With love from us all
your affectionate Father
Mother arrived about 10.30 rather tired but Baby had been very good.
