Mrs. Miller and then Mrs. Perrin who also had difficulty turning back. We stayed with the learners a little, and then were going to fish for flounders, but it began to rain, so we scuttled home - on wheels & foot. More cleaning wheels on the piazza and a little chat with each other and everyone scattered - the children to paper dolls and the grown-ups to naps and letter writing. I wrote to Ned & Fredricka & came down to find the mail gone - so borrowed an umbrella and skipped over with the letter. Spent the rest of the afternoon by my lovely ocean window reading and writing and watching the tide come in and the rain increase. After supper (everyone was dressed up - and in warm clothes) we guessed book names in the parlor & talked & "gassed" - Miss Iles & Miss Field are both bright and funny and afterward Mrs. Perrin put in her time entreating "Jennie" and Alice not to read - but they insisted, so we went to bed. July 21. Tuesday It rained very hard during the night and was still threatening in the morning. Everyone but Mrs Miller & I complained at breakfast of not sleeping. After breakfast we sat on the piazza and watched it clear off and get boiling hot. I took a ride on Diana down to the bridge and took a couple of "back views" of Ogunquit, and later when we went up to our bath, took the house
