text: It has been a brilliantly sunny day and everyone has lounged about resting on the grass. The porters and sepoys have bathed in the river and the field behind the camp is fluttering with their washed clothes. We have sat on the river bank watching the showers of white butterflies, the blue dragonflies and small warblers in the rushes.
