2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 fitted up in maple and walnut, but the berths are in two rows on each side separated from each other only by a curtain, Ladies on one side and Gentlemen on the other.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 6th Instead of reaching Trieste in 6 1/2 hours we were obliged to face the terrific head wind called the “Bora” which kept us 9 1/2 hours on the miserable chop sea giving our families a new sensation. The lounges in the main cabin were covered with people who made the night hideous by their wailing and forced tributes paid to Neptune. And each one of us supposed all the rest of our party were in trouble, but none dared to leave their berths to see and all were happily disappointed this morning to learn that none had been very sick- Before reaching Trieste our glasses afford us a good view of Chateau Miramar upon the rocky shore at our left.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 At Trieste we disembark and run the gauntlet on the wharf between two compact lines of beggars, runners, and porter boys, with scarcely room to pass in single file, all reaching for our “traps”.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 We were recommended to the Hotel de la Ville which we see near the landing a little to the left of this, wharf-   Anna and Mrs Castle with about half a cord of bundles are put into a one seated car while the rest of us walk.
