Saturday 29th On Board "Sarah" - A perfect Spring day. West wind. After breakfast sent telegram to Papa, went to the Consul's office and bought passport - $2.75 - giving one ages and color of hair. Mr Bradley was with us - came on board at 11 a.m. Found very pleasant married people, Mr & Mrs Lee of Canandaigua, N.Y. Miss Smith travelling [sic] with them. She is quite fascinating, sparkling, intelligent and enthusiastic. Dr & Mrs Robertson, Canadians - a crowd of rather ordinary looking young men - a Mr Wallach of Washington, Mr Kent of Exeter, Mr Townsend, Mr Bicknells, and a Mr Taylor - A Mr Phillips, Portuguese living in Cal. yellow as saffron, looks as if he might be seasick later on. A tolerably good dinner and supper. Steam tug Elsie took us to sea. Fort Winthrop, Independence and Warren in harbor, saw Nantucket & various summer resorts on way out. A rubber of Whist, Mr Lee & Miss Smith against Mrs Lee & self - we were beaten twice.
