"We do not want unpleasantness..."

Dr. Macklin's Journal - November 10, 1915

Has turned very cold tonight. This afternoon Worsley and others had a clean out of the tent - a good thing, for it airs the tent and prevents accumulation of too much gear. Lees lost some of his gear which led to a few words between him and Worsley, but nothing more serious fortunately, for we do not want unpleasantness in our tent.

NOTE: Orde-Lees, who was a pack rat, moved into his "rabbit-hutch" on November 11th.
