Went driving in evening. Cochero went to sleep and pony ran into post and smashed harness. We were tipped out. Went to Mrs. Smith’s restaurant and fortified ourselves with fried oysters and beer. Spent several days shopping together getting China, kitchen things etc.
Moved out to Calle Nozaleda with Miss Wilson & Miss Fee.
Reached Manila. First ride in electric cars from Customs House to Grand Hotel. No rooms there, went Delmonico, much better.
Left Hong Kong on S.S. Empire. Fine boat clean & good chow. Miss Williamson & I in same stateroom.
