Day of rest for the men.
This morning rifle fire was carried out across the valley against the cliff north of the camp. One bullet whistled over the camp, another dropped between the house and the men's barracks. Mrs. Reisner and Mary returning from morning ride were warned not to come up to the camp. Mrs. Reisner came up - much alarmed. Wrote to General Bridges and firing was stopped.
The artillery made a grand parade across the desert between us and pyramid III and out into the distance.
Persistent rumors that the Turks intend to attack Egypt. American missionaries just arrived estimate now eighty thousand (80,000) Turks in Palestine (thirty thousand (30,000) at Gaza) with guns and provisions. All American were ordered out of Turkey - to be out by December 28. This looks as if the Turks were concentrating and afraid of spying.
