“Wednesday morning, the 16th, saw me busy at an early hour. The Hospital Boat, ‘Sanitary’ had arrived up late last night with lots of stores for me. These had to be unloaded first thing. Then I had to dress fifteen wounded whom I sent off to Yemetskoe on the hospital boat. Amongst the stores received were 2 gramophones and numerous records, boxes of books, games, tobacco etc. I wish they had arrived sooner. Capt. Prall arrived from Ripalova in the afternoon, and I handed over the duties of S.M.O. to him. He seems to me to be a queer sort of customer, and I don’t think things will go very smoothly with him. However, Little is in charge of the hospital, so that the sick and wounded will not suffer. A large mail arrived at night for me – 22 letters, and umpteen parcels and papers!”
