Bishop Cotton School,  Bangalore

Letter dated October 22nd 1921 from the Rev. F. Vincent Dawkins, M.A., Warden, Bishop Cotton School, Bangalore.

Dear Mr. Clarke,

I am sorry you have to leave Bangalore.  Miles is a nice boy, and we shall be sorry to lose him; it will be a great set-back to him to change schools again so soon.

Do you not think you could leave him as a boarder?  The fees are Rs 50 inclusive of board, tuition, & extras.  We have a number of boys travelling to Bombay and he could go with them.

I will send the bill as desired but I do hope you will consider my suggestion.

Yours sincerely,

F. V. Dawkins

Letter dated Bombay 10th Dec 1921, from W.H. Hammond, M.A., Headmaster, Cathedral High School

Dear Mr. Clarke

I have received your letter of the 5th December.  No report will be sent for Miles (Standard VI) as of course he has only been here for a short time.  He did extraordinarily well in the examinations and he will be promoted to Std. VII next term.

Yours sincerely,

[signed] W. G. Hammond, Headmaster
