cheer oh - "What's the use of worrying? It never was worthwhile,
So pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile!"
So long -
Later It has poured & poured all day. The C.O.has found an empty cottage for us - a clean littlemud-hut - & we have taken possession. We have"encamped" on the floor - 6 of us in one room & 3 in the other & we are looking forward to-night to a good night's rest - unmolested we hope & certainly dry! To-morrow, we will probably be busy as the wounded are all passing through here, being sent across the pontoon bridge & on to Reni, Ismail & other places further back. We've heard not a word of Dr. Inglis or the Transport.They are probably at Galatz or Braila by now - they would all get away by rail I expect. Well - we're all "turning-in" now as we're about done.
29th We spent rather a "hard" night of it - mud floors have their drawbacks, they are both col& hard! However, we all slept "the sleep of the just".
