text: 11th March, Friday. Obliged to halt finding myself so weak I can scarcely walk across the Hut. Dr. Brown has however left me saying he was unable to wait as his supplies were running short, so I have determined upon marching tomorrow whether ill or not for we are now getting very near the end of our work and I am particularly anxious that nothing should be left undone through any fault of mine.
