Frank Leward: Memorials

J. Jones to Mrs. Leward

J. Jones to Mrs. Leward.

Upton School, June 15,1836.

Dear Mrs. Leward,—As I promised you I write now. I enjoyed my visit to Mrs. Herbert's very much. Frank had a tremendous fight to-day. A big fellow named Cheek had got a small boy's bat named Child and was knocking in the stumps with it with the blade so Frank hollowed out to him not to but he would and he made a hit at Frank with it and caught him a crack on the shoulder. Frank squared up to him and there was a ring made and they went at it like anything. They all hate Cheek. His nose bled like anything. Frank was rather hurt but he gave Cheek an awful licking. We gave three cheers for Frank and wanted to carry him in to get his face washed but we couldn't find him he got away page 13somewhere. I'm afraid Frank will get into a row. Cheek has two black eyes and so has Frank and the Doctor has found it out and Franks safe to be caned. Cheek told the Doctor that Frank began it and the Doctor always favours Cheek.

I am, yours, &c.

John Jones.
