February 1918 – March
enclosed, also letters from Doug & Ada & Edna Ferguson. Latest letter I received was dated 12/1/18.

Friday 1st March
Usual days work. Had a game of billiards in the afternoon. Stayed in the quarters after dinner & played bridge in the music room.

Saturday 2nd
Went to the races at Gezira in the afternoon. It was a beautiful day, nice & warm & there was a good turn out. The Sultan was present, with his bodyguard. It was quite a spectacle seeing him arrive. He is rather a fine looking man & seems to be very popular. He occupied his private stand. He had a horse racing in the 2nd race which came second. I managed to pay all my extras with a few shillings in.

Sunday 3rd
It was quite a spring morning. The air had a warm glow in it. Wrote 2 letters, one to Arthur Blomfield & another to Carrie, afterwards went for a walk. It was great in the sun.
