Daisie took Rose and Susanna to Murree and the bungalow is very empty – lots of work and the Soldiers’ Home keeps me busy. There is no chaplain, so I have to run it through the summer and have been busy getting a Committee together.
Mohmands giving trouble but I hope it will come to nothing. Gave a lecture at the Soldiers’ Home on Thursday last. Forest Dell is very quiet and we are quite out of all the tea-parties and social dullness.
I gave an address in the Soldiers’ Home last night rather against the emotional sort of Christian. Christ came on earth to save sinners, not to make saints. Some of them didn’t like it.
No hardship this hot weather. It was just trying to bring out my prickly heat, then a storm last night and now it is quite cool again. We have a Memorial Service for Lord Kitchener to-morrow. The Russian victory in Hungary seems tremendous and far outweighs any of the German successes in the Verdun Direction. The War goes very well.
