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.
