Series 02: Anne Donnell diary, 29 December 1917 - 31 January 1919 - Page 79
February 25 Monday
This has been my first sick leave after 2 yrs & 8 mts service. Miss McCarthy I do hope that you will not mind me writing to you, my one excuse would be, is, that my former unit is in Italy and at present I am feeling somewhat of a stray sheep.
Thanking you etc yours faithfully, AD
Am feeling very very much better - and if I should stay longer now I feel I should be swinging it in earnest.
Revelled in a precious stone shop this afternoon & bought some.
