58th day (30 May 1917)

Passed a ship that did not respond to the cruiser’s signal, but was jolly soon rounded up by a shot across the bow.  It is rather galling to think that at the end of a voyage of something about 2/3rds of the World’s circumference we shall have seen practically nothing of the World.

A full rigged ship hove into view early this morning carrying every inch of canvass.  The cruiser buzzed round her a couple of times to take stock of her.
