Squadron drill & building Cookhouses – out of mud. 100 more Horses shot today, no one wants them when they are old & their eyes have grown hollow. Wood is very scarce & we are now issued with a cotton oil seed cap & fine coal neither very serviceable. At Neby Musa near Jordan there is a shale depos. that burns very well when once lighted but the powers that be do not appear to realize it.
