Ralph [Strachey] to Pippa [Philippa Strachey]

Scope and Content

Continuation of previous letter. After the band they all went to dinner with Dr. Bathe, disturbance beforehand by his pony running away with tumtum and found lying in a mangled heap on the ground. Revived with a very good diner with lots of champagne. The concert followed, then the dance. A circular from the Agent endorsing the Board's that they would like to see every one volunteers. 'all who are not volunteers to explain their reasons and he will determine if they are sufficient ones' At a testing of the Sinharron bridge he slipped and sprained his ankle just as he was going to Darjeeling. Sent from Asanol.
