Diary of Marcial Lichauco

En route to Honolulu, December 16, 1931

The sea during the past three days out was rough and Gloria was in bed most of the time.  The rest of our party went on deck only in fits and spurts – the weather being cold.  The trip , which had every indication of being uninteresting suddenly gave promise upon my meeting the stunningest little blonde I have ever known, Adorabelle (?) Massie, from Washington Falls, Texas.  We met the second night out and became friends quickly. She is traveling with her aunt, Mrs. Witherspoon and will enter college in February.

Our entire crowd is impressed by her and Sen. O[smeña] gave a cocktail party for her the second night out i.e. Dec. 12.
