Your grandfather well deserved his place in the Eleven, but far and away the best cricketer on our side was the Hon. C.G. Lyttleton... the eldest of a famous brotherhood of whom the most famous was Alfred Lyttleton, a great athlete.' He regrets not seeing anything of Morgan in later life and closes with the comment that 'The standard of cricket has I think been raised immensely since we were boys, but perhaps we enjoyed it even more than boys & men do now, as I think it has become too much of a serious business'. Very nicely signed 'Philip Norman'. VG
