We are going on board this morning. I got your letter all right and the parcell will be sent on the ship. You can send a photo to anyone who never had one of the others. Everyone in Omaha had one so there is no need to send any there. I will write as soon as I get a chance but they say that South Africa will be the first port of call so dont expect a letter too soon. Be sure and use that money if you want it
I forgot to tell you that it is the Ruapehu we are going by the others have gone back to Featherston and will follow us in about 3 weeks time but will catch up to us as their boat is fast.
