I cannot refrain from writing a line to congratulate you on your son George's great success. As an old Cambridge man, (tho' only a Senior Op) I am able to appreciate the honour, & as a Trinity man it does one's heart good to see the old college so well represented.
Pray don't trouble to acknowledge this
