Barbarossa, October 27, 1909

The sun is shining, the sea is smooth, and everybody is happy. By noon, we had covered 287 miles, and it is very doubtful that we will land in time to pass the custom house examination on Thursday evening.

In the afternoon, we had a concert in the Dining Salon and, in the evening, after Dinner, the young people danced on the promenade deck, which had been decorated with flags and closed off by tarpaulins.

The dinner was quite an affair as it was what they call the “Captain’s Dinner.” The dining room was beautifully decorated and we had 11 courses. Might as well have made it twelve.

We all went to bed late.
