Marian and Anne both came to my room at once while I was snoozing after breakfast, entering by different doors, and wanted to know if I would walk down to the dressmakers. I went with them and Marian suggested I have a kimono made and I chose a rich looking material, but the Chinese tailor was closed when we got there.
This was a warm, rainy day, typical of the rainy season and I felt rather groggy, probably the result of coming down from an altitude, so I slept most of the afternoon.
At 5 P.M. I found a Mr. Tamaes [David reports Mr. P. L. M. Tammes], who is a plant pathologist here, at David’s room. He drove us about the town and then to his house very near the shore west of Menado.
A beautiful small house, perfectly kept, and a pretty wife who could only speak a few words of English, also several small children. He was been here 10 years and gave David much valuable information. We stayed to supper on the porch overlooking the bay. He advised David to spend most of his time in Celebes.
