I understand that the ship will be closed in at night until we reach Los Angeles, and suppose that the danger, if there is any, is from some German raider camouflaged as a freighter.
The food is rather poor, the service fair, but everything very clean and comfortable.
Walked a mile around the desk with Marian and then played three games of Chinese checkers with her using my small chess board which I adapted to the game. She won each time and very apparently made a great effort to beat me. She asked me at dinner whether I had “allowed” her to win, and I answered “of course”. I think she took it seriously.
Toured around the deck alone in the evening and then turned in.
