[[red underlined]] George B. [[/red underlined]] tells me the [[red underlined]] Harvey School, [[/red underlined]] where the two Roll boys are going now [[red underlined]] is excellent. [[/red underlined]] Hix [[red underlined]] own son [[/red underlined]] went there until last year when he was sufficiently advanced for entering a higher school. There is excellent discipline in the Harvey School and admissions are limited. Even now more applications than are available inscriptions. Long waiting list. But the two Roll boys, by the fact that they are now pupils, can stay unless they defer too long their application. George B. tells me that the mistake George Roll made while his boys were at Harvey's is that instead of full board and residence he compelled them daily trip to and from school to his house, thus tiring the boys unnecessarily and making them miss the discipline and entourage the other boys had while remaining in school and preparing their lessons in common.
