Mon. 30. [30 May 1898] Usual day. Reached Suez at 6, M. Dubail, the
C. and I on the passerelle. I went up again after dinner with the C. to
watch the departure. Moon and our electric light. Most curious
steaming through the desert. M. de P. M [Maurice] and I went up
again at 10 and stayed till nearly 12 when the C. came up. We were
then in the salt lakes.
