May 25, 1922 – Thursday
I saw my first "pride of India" or "flame of the forest
in bloom yes. aft. as we came down; the scenery
is beautiful for awhile after leaving K., but gets mo-
notonous [monotonous] as we approach Thazi, where we all got off
& stretched our legs for awhile. Saw Mr. Ferguson
who got on at K, again; he came on the boat with
me, & we won 2 events together in the games. The
water gave out last night, & we finished up sever-
al [several] other things; but we had plenty of white bread
sandwiches, butter, peanut butter, sugar, cooking
etc. remaining. The things C. had to carry down to
the others, that they had forgotten, was a shame. The
umbrella Y. had borrowed from me several weeks ago when
we were at T, & never returned, was rescued; I had
forgotten it – tho' I'd thought of it several times, but
when E. remarked about being saddled with it – a-
long [along] with all the other things, I took a look & then re-
lieved [relieved] her of it. We had break. & dinner yes., & chota
this a.m. on the train. Pouring down when we reach-
ed [reached] R. Mrs. H. & son got off first to the G.H., then E. to K.
& finally I. & I about the same time, she to the G.H. & I
to the deaf school, leaving poor Mr. H. still struggling
with the booked baggage, but he gave me a cheer-
ful [cheerful] grin as I drove by after our wait of nearly an hr.
After break. I went to de S's with my films to leave for
more prints, & then to the press for money, where I
met Mrs. H., so sent I's R5 by her & also Miss Campbell's
invitation to tea on Sun (I didn't get back in time
for tea, but as we haven't been having it at the Pa-
vilion [Pavilion], I didn't miss it so much; got doz. postcards
& forgot to pay for them! Also found home mail awaiting me
Called at the Groves; later a note came from her ask-

ing [asking] me to breakfast Sun.

May 26, 1922 – Friday
Another busy day; gathered up all my soiled clothes
yes. & sent boy for the dhoby after break, so got them off
my mind, I'm happy to say, after jobbing all morning
[next five lines crossed through]
I went to town after break, stopping at the dentist's first,
who took both an upper & lower impression for my
bridge, & examined all my teeth for cavities. I am to go
again Mon. at 2 p.m. Then went to Orr & Sans to leave
my broken glasses; thence to the press, meeting Mr.
Brough as I emerged from the store who walked
all the way over with me. Here I paid for my post-
als [postals] & attended to other matters before returning to
the school. Again went to Mrs. G's to accept her kind
invitation. Attended prayers with the girls down
stairs both last eve & this, but the mosquitoes always
devoured me. They have a new teacher in training,
Ma Mimi, a Karen, who has been attending Miss A's
school in Moulmein – Worton Lane; every one says
nice things about her. Ma Emma is away on her va-
cation [vacation] & has not yet returned. Ma Nysin took Po May
home with her for awhile which was very kind
of her. Ma Jessie, I believe, is the next & the last one
to go for a holiday. I. came over this aft [Dr. A brought her] after her
exam, happy because she passed with 71%; Rachel
got 91, or something like that, which carries great credit;
Helen 77 & Emma 75, which means with credit; the
Metler boy got 70, I believe; & Miss Hatch, alas! failed. I
wish mine were off hand, but knew there was no
hope of passing. Gertrude passed in all but Eng. into
