Volume 21 Issue 2 Summer 2014

From Constantinople to Home

By the time Alice Goodrich Eno wrote to her sister, Polly, on February 27, 1911, the S.S. Arabic, with its towering party of six hundred Americans, had steamed from the Meediterranean Sea through the Dardanelles and the Sea of Marmara. Near the Bosphorus Strait, the ship had turned northwest and dropped anchor in the curved estuary known as the Golden Horn, a natural harbor used by sailors since before recorded history. Alice Eno had arrived in Constantinople.
