My second “buckshee” parcel was from the Spinster’s Club and contained amongst various goods an amazing size in cholera belts which will come in either as a spare comforter or for cleaning harness. Church at Y.M.C.A. yesterday – a spirited address from the same little man as before. They have there the tiniest piano I’ve ever seen (set up on top of a packing case) on which the hymns are strummed.
The fireplace is a great success; we make toast, heat water, dry our things and keep warm. The noise of the guns is at times not unlike the banging and rolling about of big tanks in the distance.
