Weather delightful as ever. There is no mail left since the Zealandia left. Everything remains quiet everywhere. We have seven men on outpost. Our officers are getting uneasy about the captured men as they have not returned yet. This day we issued our ration to the company which is always a busy day. Our rations are very satisfactory now. We have good potatoes and onions now. The sick list remains the same.
