1. Thursday. Upraising early
and limited ablutions � three per-
sons to one basin and half a gallon
of water. B. Hills off to gun-boat.
Breed and I down-stairs. Train to
return, starting within half an hour.

Algiers by 3. Tramped to ferry &
through New Orleans streets to the
St. Charles. Saw Schell & others.

2. Friday. Loafing, hither and
