Fri. 9th. Another parade amongst the cultivated fields, & had a very enjoyable day, came back to Camp through Heliopolis. McFarland's horse threw him & put a couple of cut in his head. Nelson got malaria yesterday & is still "crook" on it. To-day we got tied up in the irrigation canals, & had a job to find a track out. Edmonds horse fell with him jumping a drain. The Abbassieh men from here returned last night; played billiards & finished off a letter to Jessie.
