Tuesday and Wednesday were wet and rough – spent most of the time playing euchre and sevens (or Rickety Ann, as we used to call it). After Serbia, read a book by Col. Younghusband called “The Story of the Guides”. Am now reading one called “The Newspaper” on the history, functions, production etc. of newspapers generally.
At last the back of the long Pacific run is broken, disembarking arrangements are in progress, and we should reach Wellington by Thursday next.
Tonight we were entertained by a mock-candidature for the Mayoralty of the City of Kaitoke – quite amusing too.
