We come back here for a bath

+ two days rest + refit. so that

we could do one more stunt

before going back for our long

expected + much desired eight

days rest. I hope to get a good

night's rest tonight so that I 

shall be in form for thirty six

hours without a wink. There will

be plenty to keep us occupied but

expect it will chiefly be pick

+ shovel work, but cannot tell

until  I have actually got on the

spot. I feel much better after

my hot bath, in a shed which

let in rain + hail, to say nothing

of the wind, whilst I was bathing.

The clean clothes are also comforting

I think I shall get into Pyjamas

to night but shall have to breakfast

early in the morning 'cause I've

got to get over at least four miles
