Frank Leward: Memorials

Frank to Mrs. Herbert

Frank to Mrs. Herbert

Upton School, October 1836.

My dear Grandmother I am always getting into it now the Doctor hates me ever since I had a fight with another fellow last half and says he will write to. Papa and very likely expel me. Its all about this. Some big fellows were awfully hungry at night and wanted to make a small beggar go for some grub for them he was in a horrid funk so I said Id go so I got the money and swarmed up the high window and dropped down outside page 14and got the grub and two bottles of beer at the Crown and what you think that little sneak Arthur went and sneaked and I swarmed up again to the high window and down the rope hand over hand and bang into the arms of old Pott and one of the bottles of beer went off and all over him. He was in a towering rage couldnt speak and I went off in a funk to my room and Ive been kept here ever since will you write to Mamma about it I dont like to. The fellows wanted to roast Arthur but I sent word to them not to.

Your affect grandson

F. Leward.
