Novr: 26th: Ealing 1815
All the things are arrived from Russia among them are a great many of my books Berquin, Lafontaine, & Boisards fables Conte ama fille, French Bible six or 7—English Grammars a German Book and an arithmetic book. The arithmetic book has got a nail driven through it.
I am very happy to see the boys play at School and I in the middle of them but I only play in my play hours so I only have 3[ac]: hours in a day except half holidays those are only on Thursday & Saturday. Tuesday is a quarter holiday and we have a great <
of> deal of fun at this school.
You can not expect this letter to be a very good one because I have written this by myself Mama has not written one word of this.
I am / Your dutiful & / affectionate Son
