Wednesday, February 12, 1930

10:30 a.m. – Richard is still sound asleep. I slipped out quietly and enjoyed my hot salt bath before he awoke.

11:00 a.m. – Had breakfast together in our stateroom. Dressed and went up to our deck for a brisk walk before lunch. Called to see the Purser. After lunch had a great time taking pictures. Our dining room Steward, Mr. Ferrus, accompanied us up to Deck A.

Dr. Forrest has been requested to preside at the concert tomorrow night.

We have an invitation to visit Dr. John R. Mott in his stateroom on Deck A tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. The Carnival Dinner tonight was a great success, 7 at our table, all very congenial.

Late or Early (?) going to bed. At 2:00 a.m. Wrote cards and letters.

Feb. 13 diary entry
Richard did not sleep until nearly daylight; he finished reading the book loaned us by Dr. John R. Mott “Aggray of Africa,” a study in black and white by Smith. I slipped out of the stateroom and left him sleeping and did not call him until after I had finished my hot salt bath. Then he took one and we had breakfast again in our stateroom.

Lunch 1:00. Took moving pictures on deck until time for our appointment with Dr. Mott.

3:30 p.m. He is not a Modernist. Enjoyed our short visit with him so much.
