It draws Numbers of People from their Employment, to the Ruin of their Families... It propagates a Spirit of Idleness...

He writes '[we] were very fortunate enough to get into the Sixpenny 11 together. Our cricket ground was in the Playing Fields near the "wall"... 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
