Frank Leward: Memorials

Mrs. Leward to Mrs. Herbert

Mrs. Leward to Mrs. Herbert.

The Shrubbery, September 1835.

My dearest Mother,—I had such a nice letter from Mr. Saunders yesterday about the boys. He says Frank is so bright and clever and such a favourite with all the boys. If he would only work he would be at the head of the school in time, but that he works so spasmodically. Last spring he says he set to like a man and quickly beat every one in his form but that he did not keep it up. Arthur is most painstaking and plodding but not strong. How kind of you to ask Frank and his friend Jones for Christmas. I hope Jones is a nice boy Frank seems to like him so much, I think his father is a lawyer in London. I hope Francis will be well enough to come to the Glades at Christmas.

—Your loving daughter,
