I come back to dinner in my garden at 8 and I generally go to bed at 9: We have not got nearly enough clerks and typists, one never seems to roll the stone finally to the top of the hill--it rolls back for want of mechanical appliances. I sat in a row with the Qadhi, the Mudir of Church Lands Muhammadanthe judge of Appeal and so on and so on, and we had tea and talked and were pleased to see one another.
The days melt like snow in the sun. I have invented a scheme which I practise on the worst nights. In the bazaar a few hundred yards away everyone was drumming with sticks on anything that lay handy, to scare away the devil which hid the moon, and indeed they ultimately succeeded, for after a long, long time the upper limb of the moon re-appeared and the devil drew slowly downwards, angry still with deep red tongues, and wreaths projecting from his copper coloured body and before I had time to sleep again the Ramadhan moon had once more extinguished the shining of the Bear.

When it dries I wake up and repeat the process. It happened once or twice that we well people went without it because the hospitals needed all there was. Except as an unexampled privilege there wasn't much in it, for it's all the worst modern work, gimcrack and hideous, with tiles 30 years old already peeling from the walls and no loss either.
Here War is at an end, but administration goes on apace. Perhaps I'm rather influenced by being so slack still and certainly the last two months have been horrid. I went into the first ward to ask my way. It is an invaluable political asset if you choose to look at it from that point of view.
The best time, I think, was when I came back with the plan of Ukhaidir in my pocket--the worst when I came up from Arabia.
I know the river banks well, for I've ridden up them more than once. I have telegraphed to Basrah to make enquiries. He's here for a fortnight. the letters of gertrude bell selected and edited by lady bell, d.b.e.

Deux mois plus tard cette difficile journée n’était plus qu’un lointain souvenir. Jour après jour, sur les conseils éclairés de Julia et aussi de Marlène son esthéticienne, j’étais devenu une femme-.
