Macklin's Journal - November 24, 1915 (excerpt)

Retired to our sleeping-bags replete and very contented. After getting into our bags most of us produce mending materials and do whatever requires to be done in that line. Diaries are written up, and then we nestle down and read. Sometimes on cold evenings we get right into our bags and someone reads to us: in our tent it is generally Clark. A favorited book is Lankester's Science from an Easy Chair. Greenstreet sometimes reads Scott's Marmion, and I must confess that I find his reading an excellent soporific. Occasionally the Encyclo-Britannica is opened and an interesting article chosen.
