Sat 11th
Had no calls on the phone after 11 oclock last night & slept like a top; This afternoon I washed out my flannel & intended having a swim but as we were told at dinner time that swimming in the Canal was prohibited, I contented myself with standing in the edge of the water & having a bath in full view of the general public going along the road on the opposite side of the Canal, but as the general public consists exclusively of natives & it appears to be the custom with them to strip off anywhere they want a wash, it didn't much matter.

A good many lads have bought short fishing rods from the natives & have good sport fishing, the fish they catch are only a few inches long but makes good sport & I suppose they would be alright to eat, if they caught enough
