There are many interesting passengers in second class. Annie Clemmer Funk is returning from India, where she has been serving as a missionary, to attend to her sick mother. Marion Wright is leaving her home in England in order to marry her sweetheart, Arthur, who has already settled in Oregon. I have also met a Mr. Hoffman, a Frenchman traveling with his two young sons.
This morning following the church service I overheard Archibald Gracie telling another gentleman "The exercise and the swim gave me an appetite for a hearty breakfast." Most of us are taking full advantage of the amenities the ship has to offer.
