Such a hustling and bustling preparing for the long jour ney. The hours fairly ?y on wings. The days are woefully short in which to accomplish the thousand and one things which come up at the last moment. Friends and neighbors drop in to say bon voyage; a few tears are shed and we are finally on our way.
Upon our arrival in the great metropolis of New York we take careful inventory of what will be needed on a sea voyage. It being our first crossing we are obliged to purchase a steamer trunk and steamer caps. We spend a very pleasant morning in the sheps making our purchases. In the afternoon we go to Hoboken to have a peep at the great ship that is to bear us across the water. We are like children in our eager anticipa tion, for remember it is our first view of a real ocean liner. Taking the subway to Hoboken we soon arrive at the pier where our vessel lies at anchor. Such a hurley-burley of noise and confusion of teams, teamsters and endless trucks of luggage. You would think the entire population of Greater New York was moving. Threading our way through an ever changing throng we arrive at the gangway, where we ask if we may go on board. Consent is courteously given.
