On Board S.S. Mariposa, day 2

August 7, 1 day out, still cool
Horse races at 11:00. Won a little and met some people. Played ping-pong with Mrs. Virginia Connell, Dan Eddy [Donn Eddy on ship’s manifest] and Bob Danby. Drinks afterward. Bridge with them after lunch, then tea. Cocktails with them before supper, then Keno and dancing. Lots of fun with them.

Here is a video about the Matson Line ships, of which the Mariposa was one:

4th Day Out

August 10, 4th day out, beautiful
Got up and went swimming with Don. Good sun and water. Played cribbage with him before lunch and wrote letters after. Virginia C. and I played in the bridge tournament – I lost, she won. The 4 of us and Luther took pictures and played ‘till cocktail time. Don brought us some perfumes. Mr. Fleishman and the Whitakers gave cocktail party too so quite a bit of fun. Had dinner at Don’s table – packed- then danced. Bob wouldn’t play with us – found out he was worried!

Trip Extended

Got up thinking we’d leave today but Norris called and said to try the office at Waikiki and they had reservations for the 8th so we decided to stay. Potts and I celebrated at the Royal with pineapples. Went out to tell Howard, and Roane gave us a bottle of champagne. Everyone at P Club about 5:00 – saw our boat go – haha. Date with Norris at 6:30 – at dinner with a bunch of the boys at his place. Had grand game of bridge – played records, danced, talked.

Another Day

Went down to the boat to see Gee and Jean off – saw them for a minute. Potts slept through it – got stinking. Had lunch at the Halekelaui and went to the B. P. Dropped by the Pavillion. Dick came over and we fixed supper and went for a beautiful ride way up on Tantalus – overlooking the city. L.D. (late date?) with Norris – played bridge til some 4:00AM! And had a wonderful time.
