Judean Hills. High, wild, hills round about 1 sheep to 7 acres through the summer & watered by springs in Wadi's, Bedouins only occupants at present- very thankful to be out of Jordan Valley at this time of year.
Only excitement here is our own Anti-aircraft shells falling.
Moved at 8 o'clock in evening for near Solomon's Pools again,
supposed to be having a rest, marched all night & at sunrise passed Bethlehem once more- These all night marches in the tremendous dust add to the wrinkles- You'll find me looking older when I reach home again.
