Congo (16) At Sea (Anversville) 12/12/1920 [BMS]


12 Dec., '20

Dear Mother and Daddy:

Just to add a few lines more. We sailed from Antwerp yesterday at 1:00 P.M. and are now on the English channel between Antwerp and Plymouth, where we are to stop a few hours tomorrow morning to take on a few more passengers. However, we will not be permitted to go on shore as we stop such a short time. So we are going to mail this letter at Plymouth.

The accommodations on this boat are very good. This is the same boat on which I returned from the Congo, and as I spent twenty-seven days on board, I feel somewhat at home.

We had an English service this morning, as there is another party of Protestants on board, and we are about fourteen in all. There is another party going out to a Mission in the French Congo, three couples.

We shall try to write you again from the next stop, so it will not be too long before you hear.

Love to all,
