Title

Siam Furlough: Kenneth on a Person Typing in the Middle of the Sea of Galilee

Description

While visiting in Palestine, Kenneth eased himself down into the Sea of Galilee, and swam out a quarter of a mile from shore in the moonlight. There he lay over on his back and floated in the water. He became aware of a typewriter going, looked around, and saw the shadowy figure on a boat. It was a woman typing. She was a touch typist. Her husband was ill back in America and couldn't make the trip, and so she was writing him about everything she saw and experienced and felt as she went along
