Makassar, Sulawesi, Indonesia

Written by Edward Beckwith on Friday, April 12, 1940

Woke up last night and wrote a letter to M P B.

Hugo went off an a bicycle to make a survey for specimens along the coast to the south.

I went over the negatives developed here discarding a few and ending with 122 which included 28 of Hugo’s. This made for the whole trip to date 303 filed negatives.

Hugo returned late in the afternoon and reported that he had found absolutely nothing. This was the first time that he has been out and has not returned with several specimens at least. He had ridden about 40 kilometers.

We have been using a large radio to get news, and found this evening that it was only here on trial and had been returned today, so there was nothing to do but go to bed at 8:30.
