The weather is fine but hot. We have no dressparade this day. I went down to the beach and gathered up some shells and watched boats going in and out of the river. The cable between this city and Hong Kong is in working order again. Everybody is in good humor. Soapy [Frank Sullivan] is baking some more biscuits and we have another issue of fresh meat. [Ray] Rush, [Jacob] Landis and [Charles] Herrington are on the sick list.
