a lemon orchid and in Balboa park was
a grove of banana trees. In old San Diego
-- known as "Old town", was was founded by
the Spanish missionaries in 1769 -- was a grove of
alligator pear trees bearing fruit. On the way
back to the ship we stopped at a Japanese
flower grower and bought a dozen lovely
Chrysanthemums for 30¢. Returned to the
ship in time to dress as we had asked the
Webbers and Gardners to dinner aboard ship and
stayed for the movies, which was "The Black
Pirate" -- Douglas Fairbanks. After the movies
we drove out to Gardners home on Loma
Portal -- they have a lovely bungalow
attractively furnished. Had a few drinks and
saw some of the things Bill had brought
back from China and had left with the
Gardners and enjoyed meeting the Gardners,
of whom Bill had spoken so often, very much.

Mrs Gardner called for us with her car
at 9:30 and brought me a beautiful, large
bunch of dahlias out of her garden. We drove
all about town, up thru Balboa Park again
where we took some pictures -- which follow
