Saturday morning June 3/16
A wet march into Seymour to catch 6.15 train to city. Said Good Bye to Lizzie and steamed out of Seymour. Arrived at Flinders St safely & hence on to Port Melbourne Pier about 9. Had lunch & roll call and went on board about 11. Sailed out from the pier about 1 p.m. amid the cheers of a large crowd. Had dinner about 1.30. Wrote 2 letters as we steamed down the bay and posted them with the pilot when he left us outside the Heads at 5 o'clock.
