Sunday 4 March 1917

Last night I watched the dancing at Shepherds & Continental Hotels. [The following sentence crossed through.] Many of my former partners knew me not but I did not care to dance.

Today I went out to the HOSPITAL & saw all our wounded men & had dinner with General Meredith our late Colonel but now commanding 4 L.H. Brigade.

Cairo makes me tired, much dust & windy. Khamsin blowing – I must tell you what happened at SHEPHEARDS HOTEL – A Foreign Princess who has been there a long time tucked her table napkin into her Bust dress & when she had finished forgot it & sailed out of the room with the table napkin. Some of us sent the Head waiter after her.
