Barbarossa, October 24, 1909

At 5 o’clock, we were awakened by the blowing of the Foghorn. This is a world of changes. It took about a 1/4 hour before I became accustomed to the new noise introduced into our accustomed number of noises, and I then fell asleep again to be awakened at 7:30 by the brass band playing a choral and “Nearer My God To Thee.”

No use to be in a hurry, for this is Sunday, and we are not in a hurry to get outside and see and feel the fog. We had no service on board, but we three read together. We enjoyed an excellent lunch, equal to our regular Sunday dinner. It was not very pleasant on deck, but we sat there all the same. The ladies dressed for dinner, which lasted an hour and a quarter, and, after that, we sit in the Ladies Salon.

To bed at 10 o’clock. Mileage covered up to noon, 320.
