Overview

The reader is requested kindly to glance through the following batch of letters, which, oddly enough, are all dated September 9th, 18-:
Number 1.-William Grover, M.A., Grandcourt School, to Mark Railsford, M.A., Lucerne.
"Grandcourt, September 9th.
"Dear Railsford,-I suppose this will catch you at Lucerne, on your way back to England. I was sorry to hear you had been seedy before you left London. Your trip is sure to have done you good, and if you only fell in with pleasant people I expect you will have enjoyed yourself considerably. What are you going to do when you get home-still follow the profession of a gentleman at large, or what? Term opened here again last week, and the Sixth came back to-day. I'm getting more reconciled to the place by this time; indeed, there is no work I like better than teaching, and if I was as certain it was as good for the boys as it is congenial to me I should be perfectly contented. My fellow-masters, with an exception or two, are good fellows, and let me alone. The exceptions are harder to get on with.
