Manila, Philippines to Los Angeles, USA

Written by Edward Beckwith on Thursday, August 8, 1940

An announcement was posted that we would stop at Honolulu, arriving at 8 AM on Monday and leaving at noon. The captain has previously denied that we would stop there. The boat is sailing under the British admiralty and no information on places is apparently given to the passengers.

Did some typing for Marian. Played a little shuffleboard in the afternoon after walking a mile with Marian. Talked in the evening with Gheno and Marian. He said that no Englishmen were allowed in Arabia. He spoke of a special tire for sand made by the Firestone Co. He personally preferred the Chevrolet to the Ford.
