Stoufflet, who said the treatment must be stopped, Amelia agreed to accompany a violinist 'a young law student serving his time' at a concert organised by the aumonier, confusion over arrangements, the performance is to be a mass for the dead for Dr. Louis, arguments over the piano with Mlle. Stoufflet, pleased to have avoided being called upon to entertain some officers, Miss Leigh Clare and Miss Scobell have given her good advice on dealing with the situation, Mme. Collin, the head nurse on the military side, is splendid and at 65 was a stretcher bearer at the front, but likes to dominate, Dr. Bellieze has helped her get round Mme. Collin's pettiness, and contact the surgeons personally, the last of the war soldiers will be demobbed in April so there will be many changes, and she is due for leave in April, several of the nurses are also due to leave altogether, Mlle. Guyard has offered to recommend her to a surgeon in Reims for his private clinic treating deformities in young people, he is Minciere and is 'a famous operator and values good work'.
