This has been a wet day. It is pouring down continuously. We do very little duty. We had a medical examination. Eight of them did not pass this peculiar “exam.” We have dress parade and inspection and receive a pair of government shoes and three pairs of socks each. It is still raining. [Frank] Christopher, [David] Twist, [George] Knotts, [George] Miller, [Homer] Daugherty and [George] Conn are on the sick list.
