April 9, 1920

It is cold this morning. Passed through a school of fish and saw a French fishing smack that had been out for many weeks. Later we saw a whale spouting, the first sign of animal life since starting. They are having sports on the upper deck, races etc, and the laughter comes floating down. The ship’s log shows 382 miles traveled the last 24 hours. I am getting on fine! I asked our Belgian Stewardess to-day if she was tired and she said “oh no, you people are such a healthy lot.”
