Arose at 6 am and found we had just got under weight and were entering the Gulf of Suez. We could see Mount Sinai, it being easily discernable from amongst the other hills in consequence of it being somewhat higher.
The mail came down on Board. At 4 pm we entered the Red Sea. Most of the passengers are by this time very lazy, even the gamblers being too idle to play their favourite game.
Distance to-day 83 miles.
