Came in for 2 days, but the Mohmands were threatening and I had to go out.
Came in to stay week end with Daisie in hotel here. Afterwards seedy and fever.
My first battle as a General. The Brigade did very well. We had about 100 killed and wounded and the enemy lost from 600 to 1000.
Very heavy firing into camp at night. I got a bullet through my pillow, but I was not in bed! 2 men of the King’s wounded and a good many mules and horses.
My cavalry patrols fired on and 2 men – wounded.
Enemy began sniping into camp, one or two minutes later.
