20 Jul 1942, Ella Buuck's wartime diary
Bobby had a terrible cold and both he and I slept very little last night. Dr. Lang ((Was he in Stanley?)) gave him medicine and I do hope he will soon be smiling again.
We packed some, as we expect to arrive at Africa tomorrow.
((They were heading for the port of Lourenço Marques in Mozambique, then under Portuguese rule. After independence, the city was renamed 'Maputo'.))
