I decided to spend the day developing so did not go with the others when they went ashore for a drive in a bus with the Rajah. Had the good idea to do all developing on deck instead of in the dark room and only go there for the final washing.
Photographed a good many specimens with Hugo’s help.
I developed Anne’s roll which I have had for some time and it came out well except for an unaccountable break in the film causing the loss of 5 pictures. She had a good deal to say about it remarking that “the ones lost were probably just those she wanted most.”
My developing was fairly successful but an important picture was out of focus. Others were excellent.
It rained last night and I was obliged to go below. Water ran over the deck and soaked my mattress. I find, however, that I sleep quite well below, although the air of course is not as fresh as on deck.
