26 May 1918 Sunday
Had dinner with Father George & other priests at Salesian Monastery Bethlehem, a lot of politics are mixed up with Religion here &
ecclesiastics go in for propaganda work like our R.Cs do.
Then saw the St Joseph's Convent girls play a Farce for the benefit of a French general & staff rather amusing I enclose you programme.
Sorry to see Studs like Cobran being sold up, I always liked those sheep. Sheep are very healthy here & brown & colored wool fetch big prices for Persian carpets. Camel Hair, Donkey Hair, Goats Hair all used for Clothing by Bedouins.
