Capt. J. W. Wallis comes to Hosp. to see me. He regrets my indisposition & hopes I will soon return to the office as the work has been thrown back on a/c of my absence.
I vomit a great deal. Wallis pleads with doctor to have me not removed but given every attention.
An enemy aeroplane flys low over Villers au Bois dropping bombs & firing his machine gun very near to the Hospt. camp that I’m in.
