“On the evening of July 27th we entertained our sisters to dinner. Twenty-two of us sat down to dinner, and once we all got warmed up the noise was terrific. One couldn’t hear oneself eat! After dinner we had games and dancing. As an interlude the local Russian picture-house behind the mess caught fire, and made a grand blaze.”
