Yesterday we got farther up for the first time into a chair, it was not very successful as he found the position uncomfortable so today we bought in the sofa & he lay on that, and afterwards he went back into his own big bed & was much happier, free from pain.

Gen Smuts* has made a fine speech in which he says that the whole character of the war has been changed by the Russian Revolution & the coming in of America. It is now no longer an old world War, but a war of the whole world & we must win & the Right will triumph in the end.

Mary has had measles, poor thing, but she is coming to Mary Stowe tomorrow as father is afraid of her coming here.
