Rawdon is now off the sick list and is feeling quite fit again. During the day the heat is very uncomfortable and until recently they have all been living in small tents. An expedition has left to try and capture Osman Digna's Rifle Regiment which includes the 15th Sikhs and the 9th Bengal cavalry. Lord Wolsely arrived last week, but will take no action personally. The exchange is very bad at the moment but he is going to try and send £20 or £25 each to Emma and Tillie. He asks that Emma send him 3 celluloid collars size 15 and he will reimburse the cost.
