[Neuve Eglise, Brigade Headquarters]
I left early in Nugent’s car to attend a conference of Brigadiers and came on here, where I saw Bn. Commanders, at 2.00 p.m., and so have been busy all day. All leave is stopped for the present; there is a good deal of congestion of railways, owing to movement of troops. Weather still bitter. Quite a comfortable Bde. H.Q., and I have a nice room. Ricardo is seedy and in bed. Am rather weary.
