Lord Tankerville, in New York, said of the international school question:
"The subject of the American versus the English school has been too much discussed. The good got from a school depends, after all, on the schoolboy chiefly, and I'm afraid the average schoolboy is well reflected in that classic schoolboy letter home which said:
"'Dear parents - We are having a good time now at school.
George Jones broke his leg coasting and is in bed. We went
skating and the ice broke and all got wet. Willie Brown was
drowned. Most of the boys here are down with influenza. The
gardener fell into our cave and broke his rib, but he can work
a little. The aviator man at the race course kicked us because
we threw sand in his motor, and we are all black and blue. I
broke my front tooth playing football. We are very happy.'"
