S.S. Bramley (168 Mi. W. Colombo at noon.)

Arise 5:50 and go on the forward deck and skip rope and exercise with dumbells, have a salt bath and spend the morning talking to the fellows and sitting on the bridge reading.  This afternoon I read some more, wrote to Mother and studies my prescriptions.  This morning I saw a very large waterspout but did not have any plates loaded so could not photograph it.  We expect to be in Colombo early to-morrow morning, write to mother.  Bed. 10:00.
