Manila, Philippines to Los Angeles, USA

Written by Edward Beckwith on Friday, August 2, 1940

There are a number of animals in cages on the lower deck, for a zoo in San Diego. Among them are two Hippopotami one of whom is sick, and a large orangutan from Borneo.

The wife in the Dutch family of refugees from Holland is quite ill, with a temperature of 104° F.

I walked a mile around the deck with Marian.

David has been looking over his films, of which he as about 1500. My own collection, however, contains almost all the close up views of botanical specimens and is therefore much the more valuable. I expect to make a complete set of 8×10 enlargements when I reach Garrison.
Turned in at 8 PM after an uneventful day.

There is some good footage of the animals upon their arrival in San Diego.
