I got a wire before lunch yesterday from the Northern Army-Commander, telling me to return. Got a tonga at 3.0. and arrived here 6 a.m. this morning. There’s nothing acute just at present, but I am to take my Brigade out to Subhan Khwar as soon as possible. So abruptly ends a very happy holiday.
Returned to Subhan Khwar camp and took Daisie out with me to look round.
Marched to Subhan Khwar, through Shabkadr and pitched camp. A good site with a well good enough to give us water for 2000 men and 2000 followers.
