Went out to the boat with Ted. He told me that “the crew” (Ted, Fenton, Fant and Daan) did not like the way they were treated by Mrs. Archbold and unless things improved they would all leave for Macassar.
There was a heavy swell in the harbor and much motion on the boat. They will shift her to the other side of the peninsula near Girian tonight.
I got the 100 postals of the junk at .15 (Dutch) a piece. They were not very satisfactory and I ordered 100 more at the other place from another negative. The first lot will be used, however.
Too many rains this afternoon. Temperature decidedly cool. This is indeed the rainy season.
David talked with me about junk affairs and mentioned the danger that the Chinese crew might leave if Kilkenney and the others did. He agreed that Anne was very untactful and should be talked to about this serious situation. I do not think that she realizes that Fant, Fenton, and Daan may leave too.
Bamboos have been bought to replace the pine battens in the sails. The bamboo were floated out to the junk and were then handed up and slung on the side. The junk will leave at midnight for the more protected anchorage at 3 kilometers from Girian.
David took the room Daan left vacant so that I was alone in a room which faced a regular barnyard of roosters, geese and children.
