I stayed on board in morning and then the whole gang had nasi-garing at Brant Hotel. Best chow yet. Oh boy, what food. If I’m not fat by Singapore it won’t be my fault.

Saw the well ninety feet deep and two guys getting water by lowering buckets. Low and I saw plantation and then went to Hotel where Charley told about bidding one, one and a half at bridge in Tulagi. Went back to Yankee and set sail about six. Guilder sixty cents.

Best watch in long time. Watches dogged and am on 8-12. Moon out and vic (Victrola) played.

Cold.
