ly a lovely ride. We got back a little time before supper and while eating the Foster's told us their funny experiences in an "observation car" where the man talks thro' a megaphone and tells you all about the Rockefellers! The Bucks went, too, both on the East and west ride. We lost our colored deck steward here - a nice mulatto lady carried him off! The evening was simply beautiful. Nice puffy clouds - lovely moonlight - harbor lights of every description - cars crossing and re-crossing the viaduct and boats coming and going - we sat there from sunset till late evening. Left the harbor about 8:30. The Captain lent us his glasses to look for the lady in the moon. Our table- crowd are fine. The best on the boat. I asked Kelly if he played the banjo last night (we heard 'em, at Erie) and he said "no ma-am, I don't play music". It was pretty hard to go to bed - in the face of the moon July 25. Mon. and I got up very early (4:30 or so!) to see the lovely Detroit river and the boats and freighters & whalebacks passing &c. &c. It was very lovely in the early morning light. Had quite a chat with the 1st. mate, who was on the bridge. The girls got up rather early, too, and we got into Detroit
