"November 11, 1917, Sunday, Rain but fair later.

Up at 8:00, and after breakfast, roll call, a briquet-man came around while we were all reading so we cracked some bargains. After dinner, read and wrote a bit and took a few pictures of camp. It is so muddy, I didn't go for a walk, but staid around camp reading and writing. After supper we hung around and did nothing but build castles of smoke and dreams when we got home, and of home. Bed 9:30."
