23 July 1918 Tuesday
Moving on again at 3 pm all night march to ENAB
It will not be so cool on the agricultural lands nearer the Coast, but grapes Tomatoes Cucumbers will be ripe & cheap, or cheaper than here. 1/- small bunch local price & they want well washing!!
All night we passed Camel loads laden with fruit going to Jerusalem natives only being allowed to use the roads by night for transport. Men are still dropping off from Malarial & we all hope we have seen the last of the Jordan for a bit.
OLEAC has done me a lot of good thank you for thinking of sending.
