On A. Service
It is some while since I had a letter from you but I heard that measles, smallpox & probably a few more of the 7 ancient plagues are keeping you busy.
I am still in the land of unpleasantness & doing well.
Jaundice is common here & monotony of diet gets the credit of its origin.
I understand it differs from the ordinary complaint, in that the intestines are the seat of the trouble. It is mostly accompanied by diarrhoea with the usual yellow skin & eyes.
"Played-out" swells the sick reports. Mumps & Measles add to the list.
The Anzac Medical Ass'n, is the latest institution here. I cannot say who they have on their black list. Probably it is the Turks & The Ordnance Dept.
Pow-wows are held regularly every 2nd Sunday – Shelling permitting.
All the high-browed specialists
