[George Q. Cannon]

Brigham and myself embarked this morning on the splendid steamer Scotia for Liverpool ... During the voyage Brigham and myself were the "observed of all observers" -- everybody on board soon knowing who were [we] were, the papers in New York having noticed our intended departure to Europe on the Scotia and some of the passengers having stopped at the same hotel with us and being acquainted with our persons. We were treated with great respect by all on board, many gentlemen taking pains to make themselves acquainted with us. I had many interesting conversations on board with various gentlemen.
