wee are together again. The boat, an English mailer of East and South African fame, [Walner] Castle by name, was quickly loaded. We spent that night in port. We are indeed ourselves very fortunate to be on the same boat with General Bailey and his staff + 438 R.C.

July 31 - Promptly at noon we stamed slowly eastward, picking up the remaining fourteen ships of our convoy as we went along; the giant buildings of the world’s largest city and the impressive Statue of Liberty gradually faded in our rear. It was interesting to see the numerous mosquito boats and seaplanes giving us a safe starting. There we soon left behind as well the large observation balloon that went up at intervals from the stern of an American lookout ship.

Only a few hours outside, my intestines became restless.
