Mortars bombard Gaba Tepe.
Reinforcements arrive for our Regiment.
Innoculated for Cholera.
Duty 1800 to 0600.
Furious bombardment by us on Achi Baba. Saw Turks from Observation Tower leaving the position. A battalion of infantry and six guns drawn by six horses each are retiring but unfortunately we can’t reach them with our guns.
Was cornered by a sniper today and had to run the gauntlet about 50 yards. It did not take me long to cover the distance but quite long enough for him or them to have 7 shots at me, all going close, too close, one of them cutting a button off my trousers.
