text: (23) I collapse into my deckchair and have to gather all my energy to have to get out some medicine for Chinyang who had started a stomach ache on the way up. I probably have a temperature but cannot find the thermometer. Soon I sink into bed after I have strengthened myself with a cognac and a mouthful of soup.
