P1 missing.  Envelope dated 5 Nov 20  and addressed to W.H. Collinson, Esq


…..gown, for the modest fee of 2/6 to the dresser at the Degree-giving.  I need not have a hood – I find I can borrow for my exam.  It would cost £3.3.0, and I shall soon be eligible for an M.A, so can have one of my own then.

The applications for the government grant have been sent in all together by Mr Hendy.  About a week ago he was still making enquiries about birth certificates, etc, so I presume we shall hear about it some day.  The government is always slow about these things.  However, I have £1 for next week, and have not yet touched my bank-book money, so can get along all right for the present, without your sending me any more besides the degree money.  By the way, the £4 I have already paid for Matric. is to come out of Uncle’s money, so if you send me £18.5.6. from him I shall have £4 to the good.  I ought to get the Govt. money soon, but can hear no definite news about it.  Quite a large proportion of the Edn. Course people are applying for it.

Your loving daughter,
