Diary Transcription: begin page 24
Thursday, February 4, 1915 (continued)

The Bourse Egyptienne [newspaper] states that on the night of the 2nd and 3rd the Turks attempted to construct a bridge across the Canal near Toussoum. They were allowed to begin without molestation, and then were attacked and driven back in disorder leaving everything in the hands of the British. An attack by the Turks on Kantara was easily repulsed, the Turks losing 16 men killed and wounded and 40 prisoners. The English had only three wounded.
Mr. Williams has been spending the evening with me, and we have planned a trip to Sakkara for next Monday.
Letters from Estelle, Grandmother A., Mr. Carter, and Raymond Howe.
Mohammed Ani has been laid up sick for two or three days.
