Oct. 25 Yokohama 7 am. The sun rise over the snow mountain back of Yokohama gave it a strange appearance. The bay with is strange boats flat and filled to overflowing with strangely clad people The jacket seems to be of consequence, as often the boatmen have only a loin cloth & the legs are quite bare - their coats of cloth or cotton are printed with a central figure in the middle of the back. Often the sun is so represented. Our ship the Empress of India we left with regret. Captain Marshall certainly did all in his power to make the best of the journey in spite of a very rough sea. In fact on Sunday morning we were at 9 oclock, 30 miles out of our course. And far too near the rocky shore - when the fog lifted and land was not a mile away. The ship was quickly, put out to sea, and all felt what a narrow escape, had been ours Captain Marshall, read the service beautifully, in fact I have seldom heard, a more beautiful service at sea. We parted with our fellow passengers and except Mr. & Mrs. Brindley of Tokoi Japan Mr. & Mrs. Whitney of New York who go to Siam for the shooting. Mr. Whitney wrote The Barrow Lands which first came out in Harpers. Mr. & Mrs. Rose go pretty much our same route, and are staying with us at the Grand Hotel Bund faceing the sea.

This Hotel is conducted like All in Europe. The food very good indeed rooms comfortable. The Servants at Japanese. This afternoon we went for a drive in a jinrickisha each little carrige drawn by a man. who runs at a fair pace. if the road is hilly a second man goes to assist. the charge is most moderate. This afternoon from 3 to 6 we had 3 jinrickisha with 2 men. The cost was only 2 Mexicon dollars and 76 yen. The views were dilightful and the day perfect. We saw a very strange garden with wonderful chrysanthemums grown on a single stem & then trained over a bamboo frame work and made to grow in a sort of pyramid form in regular rows. A tall one in the center, and the others in regular lines below. One had 4 tiers of blossom and must have been quite 6 feet across. The stem was not thick & had to [tether?] a thick piece of bamboo. The effect was certainly very strange to our eyes and one plant I counted 7 fine flowers. The whole garden was covered with a reed curtain or screen and each plant was hilled up about 18 inches. In the same garden we saw numbers of the dwarfed trees so prized by these people.
