March 10, 1915 / Orde-Lees' Journal
The temperature has gone up to +11 and it feels so warm that we are all enjoying ourselves in the open and find it quite pleasant to be out working without mitts on our hands -- a thing we have not been able to do for a long time. It is strange that such a temperature should seem so warm.
Marston, Crean, Dr. Macklin and Dr. McIlroy have been out all the morning training the dogs, who are now pulling well. It is wonderful how instinctively they seem to know their work so well after such a long interval of idleness. It is interesting to watch them; the leaders of teams are soon picked out from the others by their superior intelligence.
