a Boston paper along and reading about "The Minder". Every once in awhile someone would stop her. We had great fun. Afterward Mrs. P. & Mrs. M. went up stairs to bed and I changed some films and took my wheel and caught up with Alice, Wiltsie, Gurdon, the buckboard, umbrellas, cushion, novels, &c. on the bridge. I took a little ride on the sand while Gurdon was "shedding" his shoes and stockings, and then we camped out on the shady(?) side of a sand dune. Wiltsie, just below us, soon fell asleep, with the Boston paper in his hand and a "small bot" (ap- ollinaris) stuck in the sand beside him. The children played on the distant shore and "slid down the dunes" and Alice and I enjoyed a long and delightful chat and siesta. Saw a fine steam yacht crossing from York to Kennebunk or Portland. After awhile Wiltsie waked up and corked up a message "Compliments of Gurdon C. Wolfe. Newtonville, Mass - James
! another small box!" and in the bottle, and cast it on the sea. Then came back and played antics with Alice and careered with Gurdon. About half an hour afterward we saw a couple find the bottle and go all thro' the motions of surprise, curiosity, eagerness - &c. &c. until it was uncorked and the paper extracted - with that they went off triumphant.
