text: To the Dikhu river (4 miles). We did a short march to enable everyone to wash themselves and their clothes. Our camp was on a splendid site, and a conspicuous object was a fine tree grown from the pip of an orange I ate there long ago. The fruit is excellent. There used to be five but sambhur have destroyed four by rubbing their horns on them. We got the papers with the news of crisis in England.
