April 20th

(continued from last page)
which enabled a great many to take a night’s rest on shore in Raffles hotel, myself being one of them, and to horrible sunshine was awakened at 6 O’clock, by a wretched pigtail boy, bringing me a delicious cup of tea, with bread, butter and bananas, which I jumped out of bed and took and returned to my “Mosquito Cage” to eat, drink and sleep if possible, nevertheless I rested till 8 O’clock, when I took a walk down the esplanade to try and feel a breeze, if ever any could be felt in Singapore, returning to the Steamers Moon at 11am and leaving port at noon. Feeling somewhat sad all day, having left some dear friends behind on shore at uninteresting Singapore.
