Bedie has a cough and temperature. Both children have terrific appetites. They mustn’t work so hard at the dugout for it doubles their hunger.

Our phone rings all day, and we ourselves keep contact with many people like Mrs. Saleeby and Helen who are alone. I go to the Red Cross nearly every day. The knitting progresses, so the men on the hilltop will not be cold. For two days we have been almost free from alarms. Ismael and the miners stand watching the planes sail by, their nerves accustomed so quickly!
