First spent some time at office discussing new contract with [[underlined]] G.E. for Glyptal varnishes which is unacceptable. [[/underlined]] Bright cool day. [[underlined]] Ship looks clean and cheerful. [[/underlined]] Almost all passengers are [[underlined]] Scandinavians 
Well behaved group of men and women making very good impression. [[/underlined]] Very orderly and quiet. Very different from the crowd one sees on big liners for France, England [[strikethrough]] or [[/strikethrough]] Germany or Italy. Characteristic is that long before last gong all visitors had quietly left the ship. None of the crowding and excitement of large departing steamers

Transcription Notes:
verified name of ship is SS Drottningholm (Swedish American Line in service 1920 - 1948) I use the word 'underlined' with a 'd' because that it is my understanding from the instructions. It appears to be a waste of time to reopen and edit just to remove the 'd' from the word 'underlined'. If I review a page and the transcriber does not add a 'd' I don't reopen to change.
