Private Diary of J.K. Dick Cunyngham Br Gen
Mainz Blankenburg Mark
Monday June 10th. Got up 7 a.m. for walk but it commenced to rain hard about 7.30, so had breakfast & went to bed again – Feeling sick, fear tummy is wrong. Had Bath at 10 a.m. spent remainder of day on sofa. Think I have either a slight chill on liver or something is annoying my inside. Not at all inclined for food. D got 2 good loaves today left Copenhagen May 25th. Postcard from Fortnum & Mason saying they had despatched a parcel. Dull day but not much rain since 10 a.m.
