Monday 17 September 1917
Today I spent at the MOUZAM Gardens, & in the Orchid house. Alexandria is having one of their best "seasons", all Greeks etc. have made much money & spend it on clothes etc. - & jewellery. Every Hotel & Pension is full
from of people from the interior or far away as the Soudan.

Letter from Dolly today dated Aug. 30th. She did not know I'm on my way home. I was never so impatient at delay & for two pins I'd go into some Camp for duty but a few hours notice is all we get. Am reading Romany Rye & getting a lot of letters written I owe.
