This Hospital is in the densest of London.[indecipherable]
There are over 2,500 Patients here 24 Officers in my ward alone.
Flowers are very beautiful Carnations like [indecipherable] Crysanths & Roses & of course all the girls are the same with rosy cheeks so different to Egypt's languor & big brown eyes but I like the sun.
Laura's views are quite English now & I don't think she will ever go to the Colonies again.
Sorry to hear May broke her nose poor old girl she has no luck.
Went Pay Office more like a Harem the No. of girls employed there & good lookers too. I can understand what a little bit of DRESDEN CHINA you must have been as a girl.
