April 12 -Wednesday
Changed time another hour to-day, so are heading pretty much West. Read the book “White Mice” by Davis. Very good. Saw whale again and tonight saw what they call jelly fish. They sparkle[? illegible] in the water like a cat’s eye at night. Look like a mass of brilliant diamonds. We pass through schools of them. We are now at all times within 1 hrs time of Bombers protection in case of trouble. Feels safer anyway. War news sure was favorable, can’t get over too quick for me.

April 13 – Thursday
This started out as Thurs. but at 9:50 they announced that we had crossed the International Date Line, so the day became Friday the 14th. Cooler to-day.

    • Sparkle makes sense, but it really doesn’t look like sparkle to me. I updated it anyways, but left the illegible note. Thanks.
