Worried about Marion Scott's health / setting John Masefield's 'By the Bierside' to music / a cartoon in 'Punch' / receiving letters from friends / reading / requests for parcels / fear of death and sickness vs. fear of death in battle / thank friends for letters and 'ask them when the war will be over' / books / Shelley / changes in the war / describes battle / the weather / French poets and the war / having time to play and write music / a small fragment of verse beginning 'The careless writer...'.
