A beautiful calm morning the sea cobalt blue, & not a ripple – We give the men boat drill each officer having charge of a boat.
In the Gymnasium there are electrically propelled riding Saddles, for exercising the bloated hypochondriac on his voyage for health. I am luxuriating in the hot bath s etc:- knowing what is ahead.
Will give these notes to Steward to post when the boat returns to Alexandria as no one knows how the Mails will be delivered in the future.
