This conversation at the dinner-table of course was by far the pleasantest part of the evening, for the fantasia did not amount to much, although the house was a fine one, the host most cordial, and the novelty of the entertainment was enjoyable.

A prisoner-of-war has no freedom of action, and might have promised under the circumstances what he would not have done if he had been a free man. The last days of February, 1901, were very trying for our commandos on the "Hoogeveld," south of the railway.

Ten years later, 1890-1891, another very prolonged winter occurred: the frost began on the 6th of December, and, with scarcely a break, continued till well into February.

In the light of this, the following passage from one of John's letters is puzzling in the extreme: "I have just received your letter of the 16th of February, together with your translation of St Luke. I am glad you have got the job, but I must say that the Bible Society are just throwing away their time." He goes on to explain how many dialects there are in Mexico.

The Allies were now stopping as much shipping on its way to Germany as they dared without bringing on trouble with neutral powers. The Dacia, formerly a German merchantman, was taken over, after the outbreak of the war, by an American citizen and sailed from New Orleans for Rotterdam with a cargo of cotton on February 12, 1915.
