13 October 1944

Rough seas again today and quite a few more seasick victims. I went on deck this AM and it was raining quite hard and the wind was blowing. The roll of the ship is quite pronounced and makes walking a problem. Tonight at chow the Red Cross pass out ditty bags filled with soap, paper and envelopes, guide books, a novel, candy, sewing kit, and a carton of cigarettes. The ship’s store opened today with the usual line to sweat out. Prices are very reasonable and they have some things that are almost impossible to get in the States. Bought a Schick razor and carton of Milky Way bars for 80 cents. (Razor 55 cents).
