Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 96
5 April 1918 Friday
Carmelite Monastery. Warmer & fine night made hideous by Pariah dogs which follow our meat rations even into Buildings. I followed one in my shirt tails & fired my revolver.
This afternoon made my adress to the different Monks, & Fathers of the monasteries, & told them theirs was true Christianity when they took us out of the wet & mud- Am told quite hot at
Jericho now only 15 miles away & malaria starts there in a couple of months.
Enclose snapshots of Bon Fete, one Father indignant because only took ½ his face.
