Harry started off early this a. m. on a
fishing trip. I read the papers & was
enoying myself when a phone call
came for me to take charge of the
canteen because there were 3 troop trains
to come. I phoned my girls. We
prepared 80 gallons of iced tea. The
trains kept being marked up late.
We heard there was a wreck at
we piled iin 3 autos. Took all the
cookies, gum & tobacco in the canteen
& went to the wreck. We gave out all
we had. Drove like mad back to
the Hut. Three troop trains 1800 men
arrived at once. We worked like
troopers. It was a wonderful sight.
I was at the Canteen from 2 P. M. until 9:30.

Harry didn't get home until 2:30 A. M.
I waited for him so long that I
was my tiredl this morning after
very stenuous work of yesterday.
Darned & mended. Had a fish
dinner. Harry made quite a
good catch. Geo. Jr. was here for
dinner. We all took a big nap
this afternoon. Called on Grace
Blackman & Stella tonight.
