Here also is a postal card for Dorothy. I think I enclosed one for Miriam at Cairo.
What a strange desert region this Red Sea & canal country is — But I must get ready to go
Goodbye darling & darlings & Heaven ever keep you with tenderest love. Affectionately your Father J. M.
Port Said, Nov 22 1903
My dear Wanda,
A few days ago at Cairo I wrote I intended going to Australia The steamer Barbarosa, a big 10,000 ton ship bound for that far antipodal Eucalyptus land has been signaled outside & in a few hours I expect to get aboard. Three Bells brother & sisters from Philadelphia are going as far as Ceylon & so I dont feel so lonesome.
