Dear Sinclair

Had an awful time in the Cyclone passed thro the centre never expected to see anybody again. Just about fed up of the sea now – wouldn’t take much to make me chuck it up. The old ship is a marvel she is badly knocked about. Just off again for an 8 days search for the Koombana – hope we will meet with success. This is a photo of the jury funnel nearing completion in haste. Yours, E.T.B.
