Sept 2 '15 Visit from Andy West & Ed. Jessup. They informed us that they were going back on the same boat c us. We accepted their invitation to Juilly. They said Judd had spoken very complimentarily of our work here. We made quite a stir in the morning preparing for some high English army officials who were coming to visit us. They turned out to be English women Drs. In disgust I went out on the balcony & asked one of the patients to teach me a French game he was playing. We played "Le jeu de Dame" a kind of a cross between chess & checkers. Quite interesting tho. Sept 3 15 Went to Police for "Sauf Conduit" to Juilly. Helped Dr. Allison c some plaster work while the pt. were having lunch. Otherwise busy with dressings & apparatus all day. Jessup was much struck c the fact that our dressings here take all day. Out at his place they get them in the morning & play tennis the rest of the day. In spite of bringing our raquets we have not had a chance yet. It is awfully cold. And I have an invitation to go swimming tomorrow in the Seine. Not a chance!
