Tuesday, December 1, 1914

Went first to Cooks to receive tickets and pay for them. Found that P. + O. sailings had been transferred to Saturdays, so will have an extra day to get the equipment together, packed and on board.
Went to Gamage’s expecting to get a cheap tent for Egypt, but they had none at all. Then went to Edgington, who has equipped all the expeditions to Africa and elsewhere. They would not sell to me until I had produced my credentials for the expedition. I then secured a good green rot-proof canvas tent with complete outfit, good for many years. Edgington will ship direct to boat.
Went to Stanley and Houghton’s and settled accounts. Houghton’s things will be packed and shipped by Stanley.
In afternoon bought some stationary , record books, etc. at Hawson’s.
