Wednesday (18 April 1917)

The sea pure ultramarine and almost calm.  The first night on which the stars have been clearly visible.  The Southern Cross is almost directly overhead.  Looking forward to seeing the unfamiliar constellations of the Northern Hemisphere.  An albatross or bird of that genus was following the ship today, a fine fellow with black tipped wings – something like a giant gannet.
