Scope and Content

From Bristol, to Mary Clarke in London, describing how his poor health had prevented him from continuing his journey to Trowbridge, as he believes that the effects of travelling in such cold weather might prove fatal.

Clarke has met with Messrs. Wood and Stephens, and he intends calling on Mr. Roberts that afternoon.

The state of Kingswood School is giving cause for concern - Mr. Stephens is having to teach naval architecture in the evenings in addition to his duties at Kingswood during the day.
