Great preparations are being made for our departure. Cheering is going on, some of our brigade are leaving for Alexandria. Visited the Hospital. Got my plate. On Entering the hospital I pass along a wide hall with galleries & stairways on either side into a great ward with a dome roof, a balcony all round the first floor with other wards branching off. All round the 1st floor balcony is made of streak marble. This is without exception the finest building to be seen here.
