We remained in dock a full two days after embarking, dur ing which time no one was allowed to leave the ship or to mention his location in a letter. On a fine Sunday afternoon we started off, almost without warning, and in spite of our impatience at the delay, it gave us quite a shock, a mixture of a thrill of excitement and a sinking sensation, to see America getting away from us. The sights of the harbor, a change indeed from the deadly barracks and sand of the past eight months, kept our thoughts busy, but there was not a man who did not look at that receding land at least once and wonder if he would see it again.
