The sea has been like a mill pond
since leaving Panama -- four days ago.
Saturday night we had a dance; the Captain
came down and we all enjoyed a dance with
him -- I felt very much pleased that he
honored me with the first dance.
My bridge score so far is pretty good --
am about $17 plus, hope my good luck will last.
Just watched the porpoises jumping in the water
around the ship. To-night we are having
a progressive bridge party, prizes and everything.
Last night a very good movie, Raymond Griffith
in "Wet Paint" and Mrs Davis nearly killed her-
self laughing during the whole picture.

Last the cabin passengers and ship's officer
had a progressive bridge party -- 52 persons
played. The prizes were lovely -- Mrs Bales won
the ladies prize. Bills score was 28 and I was
sure he would receive the [booty], but he wasn't
even low enough for that.
The sea is still without a ripple and the
ship as quiet as if at anchor.

This is the first cool day we have had
since one day out of Annapolis. Put on my
jersey suit and is very comfy -- until to-day
every one wore lightest summer clothes. The
temperature is 66 (at 8 am) and temp of sea is 69.
Yesterday we saw some very beautiful high mountains
in the distance -- the land being Cape Lazaro of
Lower California. Expected to be in San Diego to-morrow
but this noon the ship stopped for 2 hours
and then it was announted that some engine trouble
had developed and would have to proceed into San
Diego at about 5 knots instead of 15.5 knots which is
our regular speed. Sent a radio in to San
Diego for a tug to tow us and thereby
increase our speed somewhat. The tug is due
to meet us at daybreak. Place where we
broke down is marked X on map.

Missed the tug in the fog this A.M.
and did not sight her until nearly noon. Fog was
very thick. The tug came alongside in a very
heavy swell and 15 bags of mail was transferred
