We all got off for a stroll up to the village - went into the stores & bought mottoes &c. and then up to a little Roman Catholic Church on the hill, & there we went in and saw the poor little painted altar & the wooden images. Coming down I tried to take a quaint little cottage by the roadside. Dr. Lindsay held my parasol for me - up the board walk. Coming down the Katchewanooka Mr. D.
"Hilda", Mary & I sat & talked while the rest got supper. Mr. D.
said nice thing about "American" girls and said a compliment or two for me. We also told how our opinion of Canadians had changed - Mr. D.
is English. He has promised me a picture of himself & Mrs. Dymond
. Our supper on board was a great lark - hot tea, & boiled eggs & cold other things - but good - on a dining table, but still very picnic-y. We who didn't help cook it washed the dishes and it was quite a lark. Reached Lakefield just before seven and Dr. L. took us up town "shopping", we bought postage stamps & "such" - pins & gum &c. &c. The boat didn't start till towards 8 - with us all in the bow, & some Rochester men up above us. The clouds were glorious - as they were coming down - when the showers swept across with blue sky between. Mr. Dymond
brought a Mr. (J. Longley) Taylor - a very English Englishman & he sang with us and for us - the best "Mrs 'Enry 'Awkins" I ever heard, but Chevalier. He & I got quite chummy going up, tho' he only went to
