Things about the same.
FRI. Dec. 14. Sister Cummings went away today & Sister Davies came back. She will no doubt shake things up. The first thing was to mark a number of us to have our meals at the Mess Hut, which is rather hard this cold weather. Capt. Fox continues in good humour. He has nickname for us all. I am "The Professor".
Com. Letter No 47 to M.S.
Sat. 15 Great excitement in the Ward. 9 of our family were issued with their Khaki, in prep. For going away by the hospital Ship tomorrow.
