I and Anne were the only ones who did not go below. Anne slept on the upper deck in a canvas bag and I think got wet. I was entirely comfortable in a cot in my customary place in front of the laboratory and did not get at all wet in a canvas bag.
The volcano, which is visible inland just north of Loloda began to erupt with very black smoke and I took bearings which positively identified it as Dukono.
Hugo went off alone on a hike which started at the native village of Loloda, where he intended to get some natives to go with him.
I photographed a number of specimens, a palm which Hugo got yesterday and some wild bananas from the Loloda River. I also helped Anne with her photographs which she is putting into an album.
David, Anne and Marian went off in the launch in the afternoon. I was in my room and heard them calling me but pretended to be asleep.
A great many natives came aboard with things to sell or rather exchange for either cigarettes or bottles of perfume. A number of praus came up which were stopping here on their way to Tenate. The men in them were very wild looking and acted as though they owned the boat when they came on board. Fenton found they thought little of tobacco as a trade and hesitated to offer them perfume. Ted offered them some and they were delighted with it. They brought tortoise shell, large shells, fish, lobsters, etc.
I took some flash lights of everyone in the dining room, one was of Anne, David and Marian seated at the table and in front of the shrine.
