Diary of Chriss A. Bell

Dec. 19 to 24, 1898

Neglected to write each day so will lump it. Nothing of importance has happened except the arrival of mail and more wies [wires]. I received another box. Letters from home, Marian, [and] Lottie. Wrote to Bert Harrell and others sending boxes. Mr. & Mrs. Miller, & Mrs. Dallin sent a cake. Astor Battery has gone home. American says 6 regular regiments to regulate us. Ifthis is so we ought to be home in 3 months. Jim Watson went to hospital with fever.
