Series 02: Anne Donnell diary, 29 December 1917 - 31 January 1919 - Page 251
31st Got up at Sunrise to see what was to be seen – Pretty houses - here & there – Palm trees & the purple haze on the sandy mountains – Yes - the life of Egypt is light & fascinating. We regretted not being able to go ashore.
100 L.H. men were taken on this afternoon
We are anchoring by the Ullysses again – hear she has Diptheria on board now. We sail at 4 p.m. leaving her behind & after 100 L.H. men have come on board.
See Dec 26th.
Hope to see Mount Sinai
