1914 – November 21

I am abolished, so I have a happy peaceful day with Daisie, my first day off since a very long time. Beautiful weather, but frightfully cold. I have been 3 days in bed with influenza and fever and now Daisie has it. Major Fernie came to tea. I don’t know what is to become of me and don’t really believe they mean to abolish me, but I have no orders.
