From J. B. Innes 17 December 1
I sent this to Malvern duly and you see the fate it has met with.2 I send it off again as I write so little it is a pity to lose what I do—
And as you are in some perplexity about your son3 let me tell you that the Revd. I Gresson who is a most charming fellow, and who I hear has a very nice sister is just starting a small establishment for young boys before they go to public schools at Worthing.4 You will know all about the sanitary condition of Worthing.5 If you want such a place it may be worth while to ask about this I can answer for Gresson being a most agreeable man with boys, as well as grown folk He has been second master at Bradfield for many years and Stevens can you more about him.6
Our best regards | Faithfully yours | J Brodie Innes.
Suggests a new school for CD’s son [Horace].
