Aug. 7 Sat.
Kept pretty busy to-day as we admitted about 90 wounded – all stretcher cases – last night.
One man died to-night, diagnosis: Enteric.
In the evening with a couple of others, visited 2 of Cairo's largest & finest mosques – One of them in particular looked splendid: beautiful carpets & rich carvings & ornamentation in a blaze of illumination & the Mahommedans chanting their prayers.
