The following notes were written at odd hours and strange places -- some in times of stress, others in times of enjoyment -- most when the writing thereof postponed for a few moments more odious tasks. This is not a literary piece, but just a sketchy reminder in outline for of all of the then forbidden things that I would have liked to have written about to Jane and the family.

2145:-Routine day. No definite change in the weather as yet. We are making about 360 miles a day. Some minor surgical procedures after chow tonight. Rather rough this AM with large ground swells -- moderated somewhat at present.
