1915 – April 3

At last! P&O S/S Moldavia, 4 berths first class, comfortable but small. Knightley and Ada, Emily, Vincent, Lou and the 2 boys came to see us off at Liverpool St. 10.25 a.m. rainy and cold. Sad farewells with the 2 boys who are old enough now to understand and who are nice enough to love their father and mother – Not for tips anyway as we gave them nothing.

Susanna is better, we were afraid she might develop measles and she had croup the other night. Very calm but cold. All lights out and all sorts of manoeuvres to baffle the German submarines. We were warned to have all our warm clothing ready at night in case we had to take to the boats. Such a sound restful sleep after all the turmoil.
