Marian called up to ask how I was.
Went down to breakfast and expect to be all right tomorrow when Mrs. Archbold arrives.
Marian called up again – cable from Mrs. A. that the junk left Hong Kong yesterday. This of course was very important and started us all thinking about the arrival and the trip. David and I spent a lot of time this P.M. looking over maps and reading Wallace’s The Malay Archipelago.
The tentative itinerary arrived at was Manila to Basilan, the most southern island in the Philippines, then to Menado on Celebes, then Ternate, Halmahera, Tidore, Motir, Makian, Bacan (the most interesting of this group), Amboina, Banda, and possibly Kei and Aru.
Letter from Mary and everything all right.
David and I had tea in his room. Later Marian persuaded me to come down to dinner instead of going to bed. They are so nice that it is hard to refuse them.
No fever this evening and am apparently getting all right.
