[[preprinted]] Saturday, January 1, 1910 [[/preprinted]]

The New Year caught us at Besseling's this trip.  We all had a good time there, - which lasted until four a.m. - and then Barney Baldo King, the Irish Consul; and myself started out for Kilindini to put Ilford on the Zanzibar boat, which was due to leave at daybreak.  We got him there with a small margin, for as I got back to the house the dawn was comin' up over the mainland, hand over fist. 

It goes without sayin' that I wish myself (both halves) a Happy and Prosperous New Jahr [[German for Year]]!

Transcription Notes:
Kilindini is confirmed as a legitimate place. The third word on line nine was hard to make out.
