Had perfect weather to Boston until shortly before arriving when it was misty. Saw eleven whales during the two days, including one who was fighting a sword fish.
Steering gear broke once and ship went in a circle. Docked at Army Base in Boston and Jack and I went into town to walk around. Friday it rained all day. We took a subway to Cambridge and saw Harvard, the stadium and went through the Zoological and Art Museums. After dinner read novel till 4 AM.
Saturday we went to town and received mail from Mother, Jean, and Uncle Billy Graves. Just before Clairton left at 3:15 PM , the S.S.Leviathan came into dry dock next to ours with 13 tugs. Sailed out in perfect weather and shortly after dinner, land dropped out of sight. Saw a shark alongside boat before dark. Started second book after dinner and finished it at 11 PM. Sunday perfect weather. Sea smooth.
