Washingtons birthday at Sea. Not so cold as yesterday afternoon and evening. Vesselrides not quite so smoothe [sic]. Slept well and dressed ready for breakfast at 930. Papaseems to feel very well indeed. If this good weather continues to the end of the trip wewill have reason to be thankful. Spend our time walking on deck eating reading SherlockHolmes and Baedeker. Yesterday I read a little book “Ships that pass in the night. Atbed time the Ship was rolling pretty badly and I began to feel very uncomfortable – after a time I felt better but could not sleep. Quite warm in evening.February 23, FridayA bright morning and Ship still rolls a good deal but it is called a fine day. Got up todress after eight but was obliged to lie down again and had to take breakfast in bed andcould not go on deck before eleven oclock. We are well looked after. I took luncheon ondeck and there I still remain at times pretty comfortable and then again not. Papa seemsall right. Gentlemen walk the deck to-day with out overcoats.February 24, SaturdayPretty rough water and great rolling. Still not bad weather – feeling better to-day. Wehave just come from luncheon fiddles on the table for the first time this trip. Colder today. Papa still quite well. We are nearly half way over. Little sleep last night. Fog hornkept up pretty regularly all night. Children aboard seem quite happy and well. Veryrough this afternoon.February 25, SundayClear morning. Heavy Sea. Tuetonic passed us this morning on way to New York. Theypromise us better weather that is smoother sailing after to day. Many are ill I am feelingbetter. Papa all right. 46 miles yesterday. How we roll and how difficult to stay anywhere and yet this so far is called a good passage. A rough night but we make goodtime.February 26, MondayQuite a windy day rough as it was all night. Hardly any sleep. Papa slept pretty well. Hecontinues very well and I much better than expected to be. Each hour to-day brings usnearer Queenstown which we hope to reach tomorrow evening. We are to have aconcert or some such entertainment this evening. Few are able to walk on deck to dayship rolls so constantly. An hour ago at 3 p.m. we saw a beautiful rainbow. I amsurprised at the quickness with which a day passes. Not so monotonous as one mightfancy. Took Tea in Captain Parsall cabin met Mr. Remington the artist there.February 27, TuesdayLast night was more comfortable for sleep. Quite an entertainment given for Sea mensorphans. [Pony/Rony?] Moore did the comic part. This is most delightful day we feelwell. Just from luncheon. Wrote to Mother Mrs. Upham Walter Gertrude and finishedletter to Mamie Jim, Clara and Charlotte. Land has been seen before luncheon time.Spent afternoon looking the Green Isles shores. Reached Queenstown at 630. Tookquite a time to see the mail taken off. Papa got telegram and some Irish papers. Sawwhere the City of Chicago went down.

These are all fascinating, and the transcriptions a labor of love. How about a half-page illustration, a photostat of her actual handwriting? Just a thought. This one covers a trip to the Continent, but check them all out. Can't find the first one I ever read (a few months ago, lightyears in Scribd-time): "'Papa bought a Courbet"--lucky Mary!"
