Title

Siam Furlough:Kenneth on When John and His Friends Tried to Convince Kenneth to Manage a Hotel

Description

John, Kenneth's guide in Beirut, had some friends there, and he learned that they were fresh out of a hotel manager. They made Kenneth a proposition, that he become the manager of the hotel. John would run the taxi business, and the other fellow would run the girl side of things. There were a lot of prostitutes hanging around the hotel, but they said Kenneth wouldn't have to be involved with that (he hadn't told them that he was a Presbyterian missionary). Kenneth thanked them for their offer but declined, said good-bye to John, and boarded his ship for a slow trip through the Mediterranean.
