13th July (1917)

Went down canal again this evening and did another little sketch (makes me think of a popular song – “another little drink”).  Went out with the wagon teams today and galumped round a rough paddock and back over the cobble stones; – like a mild and continuous electric shock.  Men keep drifting in from the Hospitals, many being main-body men.

  1. I’m very much enjoying seeing his paintings. How on earth was he able to store them safely and bring them back to NZ?

  2. I strongly suspect Lincoln added them to the letters he posted back to NZ. There were standard envelopes for overseas troops – as a family we have a collection of them, albeit empty. Hence too the reason for them being the size of a large post-card: they fitted in the envelopes provided.
