Tues 12. [12 June 1900] Left by the Newhaven at 1. On board was Dr Cropper, Mr Eddy, Professor Curtiss, and Dr Jely with all of whom we soon made acquaintance. Horrid little rolling boat. We were established on the bridge. Got to Sidon [Saida] at about 4 and went ashore. Charming little town with the great castle sticking out to sea on the bridge. Mr Eddy left us here, but sent me down some Druze books. Tyre [Sour] about 8, walked about in the moonlight. Awfully impressive with great columns lying about on sea and land. Went to the English missionaries Miss Walker and Miss [space left blank] who gave us a very good meal. Back to our boat about 10. I had Dr Cropper's cabin on the bridge and was most comfy.
