Kodak'd by Author
This afternoon was spent chiefly in walking the upper deck; the thermometer was 70 degrees in the shade, and the Kodak fiends were at work everywhere preserving as best they could the counterfeit presentments of each other my party among the rest; and although it was our first experience, and we had little faith in our ability to accomplish much, we have been most agreeably disappointed by the result, many of our photographs of the scenery and groups being perfect gems in their way.
