On Thursday, August 3rd, my wife and I left Hull on the "Arcturus"

with some fifty other Esperantists, including Mr. John Merchant

(President), and Mr. Warden (ex-President), of the British Esperanto

Association. Until Saturday the sea was smooth, though the weather

was dull, and we all ate heartily and chatted and joked in holiday

mood. The ship's company were all Finn's, and none of them spoke a

comprehensible language except the Captain and Purser, who spoke

English well. The waitresses were very demure, some of them wearing

their hair strained back from the forehead in puritan fashion.
