quite a visit before the girls came Mary, Nellie and Edith, later Charlotte & Kittie Crichton, and later still Matie. We had a nice supper of course and a very jolly time. I am so glad Lura is going & think she is! Aug. 14. Mon. Today the Canadian Yacht "Temeraire" won the second race. "Iroquois" won the first Saturday. A good breeze and everyone euthusiastic. It was a nice day so (tho' we stayed late) Ethel and Carol Flack and I took our lunches and went to Summerville and saw all the pretty yachts - home and visiting - and heard the wind whistle and watched the big breakers and ate our supper and got home at ten - It was refreshing. Aug 15 Tues. Lura says now Chattie Davis has decided to go to St. Helena (last night). "but she has all day to change her mind". I shall be lonesome without Lura, who leaves tonight. It began to rain hard tonight (this p.m. just after another "Temeraire" race, rather but Mother and I went over to Davis's to hear Helen's last letter and to see if Chattie was going. She was and so was Hamilton! He decided at 7:30 and they left with us about 9. It poured - and when Mrs. Baker & Laura left Charlotte at 11:30 neither boat was in!
