19th September, 1910
One of the most advantageous things about the Antarctic, of course, is that one doesn't get sick there. You're not going to to catch a cold. There's no dirt. Still, that doesn't mean that we shan't stay clean. A weekly wash will do us all good. I hope we've brought enough soap; this has to last all of us three years:
36 bars of Sunlight Soap #3
48 bars of Velvet Skin Soap
3 Bars Lifebouy Soap
2 Packets of Monkey Brand Soap
6 tablets of Captain brand Sea Water Soap.
Very assuring that Lifebouy soap can kill Typhoid, Cholera and Diptheria microorganisms in minutes. One does rather wonder why it can be that in this day and age so many people fall victim to such diseases. Go out and buy some soap.
