Food detail this A.M. Very successful. Biscuits and tea for lunch. Then shoe detail after lunch. Got every man fixed up with a new pair of shoes that we could fit. Then dinner. After dinner a flour and lard detail. Very successful. Men coulan’t carry 50 lbs. of flour each, so found an old cart and loaded it. This pulled much easier. Was very tired when I finished. We are getting things quite well fixed up. Believe we will be very comfortable during the rainy season. Rather hope we don’t move. Rumor of Germany’s surrender and Russia declaring war on Japan persists. Almost believe it.
