There is not much concrete about us that I have been able to discover but they have just installed electric light which is a very great saving to the eyesight. A guttering candle and small handwriting are enough to blind one in a very short time. We have certainly comfortable and moderately safe quarters so have no complaints. I seem to have solved the knee problem most effectively. At first I had rather more trouble with it than I cared to think. It was very swollen at times and also exceedingly stiff after a night of sleeping in my breeches. At times it was so weak I could do scarcely anything with it. I now keep it bandaged always day and night, with a pad of thermogene wool all round it. The result is good, and there are no more swellings or stiffness and I can do as I like with the joint.
