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:

Another Beautiful Day on board

August 9, 3rd day out, beautiful
Horse races – then sat in smoking room and played games ‘till lunch – like “Hello”. Cribbage with Dan then swimming. Cocktails with Esther, Mr. and Mrs. Whitaker and Mr. Fleishman. After the Keno game we joined theirs and others tables. Don finally came over and I joined his table and after music stopped, party moved to bar and then to smoking room and lasted till 2:00, grand fun!
