18 January 1918; Friday

Up at 7.20. Shaved and got ready. Rain in the afternoon. Not many patients in the morning. Finished nicely. Had some wounded in at night and one young lad died as they brought him. Received letter from Ernie and replied to it. Read sermon by Dr Fort Newton1 on the Mother of Christ and thought it extremely good. Went to bed rather late.

  1. Dr Fort Newton: See note on 6 January
