Arrived at the door, with Alice and Nan to welcome, at about 7 and had a nice supper of creamed chicken salmon &c. in the beautiful old - fixed - up - middle - living room. Gurdon and his friend John Davis of Saugerties, were on the lake, and returned later - We took a little walk over near the hotel and met Mr. Brewer and organist & composer of Brooklyn Aug 21. Tues. Slept finely in my little tent - shaped bed - room & woke at 6:45. Unpacked - I was too tired to even unlock my trunk last night and still pretty much used up today. It was quite hot. After breakfast & a little dishing, went to the store (Miss Sade Knight's) and the post office and wrote letters and sat with Alice under the trees, facing Flag rock and crochetted &c. Helped Alice make sand- wiches in the afternoon & we had company to supper (which was to be "shore supper" but it showered & was too wet) the Parkers, Mrs. Parker, of Boston, her daughter Dorothy, her friend Marjorie & another, Eleanor Baker (Miss Sade's niece) and Miss Serres (Mr. P's Stenographer who visits there.) They were very nice and we talked till 10 o'clock. Jno. Davis is awfully funny and immensely entertained by "jokes". Bed at 10:30. Aug. 22 Wed. Cold morning but hot later. Off for row after breakfast certainly a lovely spot - Alice & Nan got boiling hot rowing & I sitting still so we came back & sat in the cool yard. Percy
