Another beautiful day, though a little colder than usual. I wonder what the folks at home will say when they hear I’m continuing on the Yankee. I know Dad will be pleased, but I’m wondering what Mother will do. I hope that she meets me in Singapore, but will be just as pleased if she did not for it would only mean some pretty wet scenes and a lot of explaining.

Am reading Papuan Wonderland by Jack Hides, Joyce Millwood’s late brother. I have heard a lot about Jack and like the book very much.
