May 16th [18th?] Verbliani.
We are v. busy these days, but life is full of interest & the time is simply flying. We evacuated quite a number yesterday, but soon got filled up again. Some of the cases are most interesting. Everything is still wonderfully fresh & green, despite the great
heat & dryness. Sunday last W. & I had long hours off, so instead of our usual sleep!, we took our tea out with us & had it by the side of a tiny stream, a couple of kilos distant from our camp. After the exertions of making a fire, we indulged in a wee sleep, then a wee "paddle doon the [?]" & then back to hospital again & back on duty at 5.30p.m.
News from all fronts is scant these days. We hear so little here, our daily rag - "The Balkan News" - is not to be depended upon & at best is not very communicative! Here on this front, it is the same old game of "watch & wait". A v. hard game to play at too. There's a constant bombardment going on & the guns boom away all night, but the casualties are on the whole comparatively light. Malaria is now rampant & from all accounts we seem in for a bad summer of it.

May 25th Verbliani.
