.OUTWARD BOUND

OUTWARD BOUND


O N a very cold day in December I
stood on the deck of the steamer
Madiana as she slowly pushed her way
through the ice toward the Narrows
below New York.
After leaving the luxurious Waldorf
to face the biting cold winds and ac-
commodate one's self to the surround-
ings which the steamer affords, I must
say I did not wonder at my friends
asking how I could choose to take such
an out-of-the-way sort of trip. Not
that the Madiana is an uncomfortable
boat, for that would be doing it an in-
justice, but I anticipated a second Ma-
jestic or Teutonic, and in this I was
disappointed.

From: Morris, Ira Nelson. With the trade-winds; a
jaunt in Venezuela and the West Indies. G. P.
Putnam, New York 1897. Contributed by the
University of Central Florida
