We arrived at Toronto at 10:15 and took a carriage over to the dock where we left our bags &c. Saw the ruins of the fire on the way. It must have been enormous - the ruins are - and most picturesque. It just ruined the old Queen's Hotel. new building are going up rapidly, on some of the space but acres are waste. It was a really beautiful and delightful day. Laura hadn't seen Toronto, so we did shops & - a lovely fur store in the King Edward where I lost my heart to a brown fur auto mobile coat - $75 - which I wore several minutes. Laura bought baskets &c. We went into the hotel and into Catto's for plaids (the McIntosh - reddish - and the MacArthur - blue & yellow) and pongees. Almost squanderd gold here again. To Eaton's - to Mickie's - to McConkey's for lunch (where I tried to telephone Allan Dymond, but couldn't remember the office) and finally to the boat "Kingston" which sails this year at 3. Had a delightful trip home - mostly on the hurricane deck - & without coats - Toronto harbor was beautiful as always and the city and island, as we leave, most
