On both sides of a card with a mourning border. Good, on lightly-aged grey card. If Johnson does not miss more than two lectures he will be in no danger of 'losing a certificate through failure of attendance'; if he misses three, 'it becomes a serious, but not hopeless question. Four absences would certainly disqualify'. Ryle will put a note against Johnson's name, 'that you have been made captive by the "flu"', and trusts that he will 'soon be released from the grip of that detestable "pestilence"'.
