1915 – June 29

It is really hot now, the bungalow is generally 92º [F]*, but we keep fairly fit and cheerful. We miss Susanna very much, but she is well looked after and happy in Murree. I go to Simla on Sunday to lecture on Wednesday. Daisie goes to Murree and I join her there for a few days leave after the lecture. We shall both be glad of some fresh air.



1915 – June 13

Wore my plumes at Church parade for the first time and felt very shy! My lecture was so successful that two C.O’s have asked me to give it to their men, and Crocker, the Risalpur cavalry Brigadier has asked me to lecture at Risalpur.

Peshawar gardens are rather wonderful, here, in the middle of June we have on the dinner table, Asters, verbena, Phlox and Dianthus, rather seedy ones, but quite pretty and homelike. We dine to-night with Sir George Roos-Keppel.
