Met Miss Blackadder just after I had been out for a little exercise. She was looking fine & it did me a world of good to see somebody from home. I get up everyday now & walk about a little. It’s very cold, snow is on the ground & the water in my room freezes overnight. My nurses were Sisters Eastwood, Park & Harrison.
