It was with considerable surprise as well as pleasure that I received a most acceptable Christmas Box from the old school again this year.
Would you please convey to those responsible for the Christmas boxes my sincere appreciation of this kind remembrance? It seems to me rather remarkable that the school should be able to keep track of the many graduates which have passed through its portals, and in such an acceptable way.
May I also say that the box was packed with articles which will prove most useful. The Christmas cake in particular was a delicious treat.
To yourself, the staff and pupils, a happy and successful new year.
