Mrs. Vincent Invited Me Most Cordially To Come To Her House Until We At Least Knew What Quarters We Were To Have, And Captain Vincent Came Early To-Day To Insist Upon My Going Up At Once, But I Really Could Not Go.

We have been in rain and mud so long I feel that I am in no way fit to go to anyone's house.

Besides, it would seem selfish in me to desert Faye, and he, of course, would not leave the company as long as it is in tents. We are delighted at finding such charming people as the Vincents at this horrid place.


WE are in our own house now and almost settled. When one has only a few pieces of furniture it does not take long to get them in place. It is impossible to make the rooms look homelike, and I often find myself wondering where in this world I have wandered to! The house is of logs, of course, and has a pole and dirt roof, and was built originally for an officers' mess. The dining room is large and very long, a part of which we have partitioned off with a piece of canvas and converted into a storeroom. We had almost to get down on our knees to the quartermaster before he would give us the canvas. He is in the quartermaster's department and is most arrogant; seems to think that every nail and tack is his own personal property and for his exclusive use.
