Sept. 26, 1943

We are still sitting on the hills north of Potenza waiting for future developments. All sorts of rumours of course.

Yesterday received a very large mail – first for I don’t know how long – the atmosphere seems much brighter today. My ambulance arrived to join us today and we have scrounged large amounts of dressings, drugs, etc. from Italian hospitals.
