sidenote on monastic wharves

Samolet Steamship Company schedules contained a note informing passengers that when ships called at monastery wharves, such as at the Tolgsky, Nikolo-Babaysky (Babaika), and Reshemsky (Reshma) monasteries, they would refrain from sounding their horns during prayer times.

Passengers who chose to disembark would need to be mindful of the ten-minute standing time at the wharf (or risk being left at the monastery).
