We continued north up the Mindanao coast making about 6 knots.
Everything went smoothly and Anne remarked to Ted that he seemed very cheerful. Schofield told me that Anne did not seem to think highly of Ted and asked me the reason. He also told me that he himself was accustomed to dealing with woman of Anne’s nervous temperament. He said “Never go after them, always wait for them to come to you.” There was a good deal of missionary talk. Mrs. Schofield wondered “whether God would allow a nation like the English to be defeated by the Germans.”
There was only a slight roll but Hugo felt sick and Fenton slept most of the day.
Schofield has several times urged me to come on the trip with him. He said he would find it difficult to get as good a navigator and wanted me to come as 1st officer. Aside from the missionary side, with which I am not in sympathy, the trip is over for me and it is time to return.
