On the Confiscation of His Diary

November 2, 1896

Monday, 2 November -- Today, they returned to me this notebook which they took away on the 11th of last month before reaching Port Said.  For this reason my diary was interrupted. They searched me and inspected thoroughly my luggage.  They took away all my papers and afterward they put me behind bars and they did not take me out until we reached the Red Sea.  That was what they did to me in 16 hours before our arrival.  Also twice they put me in four or six hours before and they take me out when we are already in the high seas.  However, at Singapore they put me in 16 hours before our arrival. Also twice they put handcuffs on me.
