November 2, 1911

from Flo's diary:

Nov 2: Awoke at 5 am. Boat going smoothly. Fine rest. Gray sky. Breakfasted. Walked on deck with Capt. Read magazines which Olive game me. Lunched. Played Whist with Mr. Reed, Capt. Lathrop, Mr. Clark. Dinner. Whist. Talked with Mr. Reed. Red at 10.

Olive was another of the Salladay sisters.

Whist was a popular 19th century card game. It sounds a lot like the more modern version of Bridge.

Capt Lathrop distributed the silent movie, "The Chechahcos in 1924. According to Wikipedia, he was living in Cordova in 1911 where he was mayor. Source:

This was taken in the 40-50s. Source:
