Heffer- man very nice - also 1st Mate who told me a lot. Murray Canal & Presque Isle after dinner & then the lake (rough) Marguerite sick. I read "Potash & Perlumetter" in my berth & then went to supper alone - lovely day. Mother Mr. R. & Nana to meet us - arrived rather fagged. Fri. 1912. Still cold. Lunched with Bess & Mary (& Miss Durney) & learned all about 7th Lake. Meta came over with Sacketts harbor & camp pictures tonight. Read & played flinch &c. Sat 1913 Lovely day. Got a new lamp shade today. This p.m. made prints & about 4 rode out with Mother, Helen & Jim in the Ford to the Rush Gate House (Miss Gray's) & had a most delicious codfish & chicken supper. Went egg shopping first. The dinner was fine (my treat) Later Jim & I walked way round the reservoir & saw a must lovely blue and magenta sunset - green & purple cabbages in the fore ground & blue smoky hills & pink clouds back. J & H came in a little while. Sun 1914 Rainy but cleared. The whole crowd rode down to the dam. Some went to church & some walked & shopped & ate ice cream &c. &c. Had quite a jolly time after dinner had a nap a read & then wrote. Later walked up the trail & to "Bert's" (Bonta's) camp. Where we found his Victrola & played the "Dill Pickle Rags." In the evening he brought it down to the camp fire & Mr. & Mrs. Adams & Mr. & Mrs. Bush did gay stunts with it. Had a lovely row around the Island earlier. Lovely moonlight tonight.
