The first thing was to establish a dept at Kroonstad for my brigade supplies.
He has marched with his fellows to the dept, and got his uniform and arms.
Meanwhile the watchman of the dept would be there uttering untranslated dissatisfaction with the whole affair.
Hitherto it had remained at Gilgal, the headquarters and dept of the nation.
Before quitting the dept, the latter had left a small supply of provisions, which proved eminently serviceable.
In such a plight did they reach the dept on the Murrumbidgee.
But the dept Boxing is on to-night, and I'd be there too, only it's my turn for guard.
On the 7th the dept was reached and found to be under the superintendence of Captain Norman.
I shall accompany you to the dept, and place you under the protection of the conductor.
The party must push on and on to reach the dept where food awaited them.
