Diary 22.3.1883

Thursday 22nd March

We left Glasgow 10:30 on the morning of the 22nd March 1883 in the steam tug "Hero", had a pleasant ride down the Clyde, we had a good sight of the shipbuilding, it is really a great sight to see ship after ship half-built and full of workmen, we got to ship between 1 and 2 o’clock.
After we got on board we had dinner which was soup and beef and potatoes, enjoyed the beef very fair but soup was nothing but water, tea at 6 o’clock of bread and butter then to bed at 10 o’clock.
