12 Dec 1918: Graudenz

Thursday. Dec 12th.     Went into town all day with Miller.  Fearful getting up this morning.  Thousands of degrees of frost.  Had lunch in town, went to a comfortable Weinstuber, read and drank liqueurs all the afternoon.  Dined in town.  Was visited in the evening by the Naval Officer, a doctor who gave us ripping and recent news of England.  Felt no end cheered.  Stayed up till two o’clock stewing in front of the fire and reading.
