merry party. Left Suez at 8-30pm.
Very funny at night some of the officers were well gone, otherwise three sheets in the wind, and they would insist on giving the boys a speech. It was as funny as a circus.
Tried to sleep on deck, but it was so windy that I was kept busy chasing my blanket all over the deck, so got down below.
