Transcription

April 25. Temperature 9:00 A.M. 82°. Still wondrous calm. Expect to arrive Hongkong about 3:30 this afternoon. Saw 4 fishing junks before breakfast. They leave their junks to go fishing from small boats. A large whole fish was held up for our admiration as we passed. Venturesome fellows to leave the shore so far. Many must be lost in typhoons, though they are acquainted, no doubt, with the weather of all the year and know what to expect. Macopa, red fruit, tall tree. Chico, clay-colored fruit, tall tree, native to Philippines. Went ashore about 4:00 P.M. called at Pacific mail to secure cabin for home. Went to hotel with two young teachers who have been in Philippines 2 or 3 years. Mr. Carberry and Wardell. April 26. Visited Botanic Garden in morning. The S.S. Siberia in afternoon, and walked about town. Secured ticket.
