put the rubber blanket over our laps – and over the head of the people in front. We held up umbrellas and took off our hats and really rather enjoyed it. The lining of the blanket crocked blue all over Trudy’s hands and Mr. Colver’s bald spot - which emerged very highly colored! I enjoyed the journey very well and didn’t get tired until about the last ¾ the way (30 miles) but arrived very much used up about 7:45. We had been riding since 12:30 – with only a half hour pause for dinner! Our friends went to the Prospect House – a big hotel on the south shore, and as we found we could not get on to Long Lake tonight, Trudy & I decided to go up to “Merwin's” – or the Blue Mt. House,
a place we had once thought of going to, to stay – Mr. Merwin was at the P.O. to meet the college girl and a New England School - ma’ am (inside) who was also coming for the dining room. He took us up another long stretch of hill and wood and mud, emerging in front of the house – where there is a lovely view all down the lake and the hills about - The “Panther” the “camel’s back” &c. but as the house is on Blue Mt. that is behind us. We had a nice fish supper and scrambled into bed – “the bridal chamber” in blue, more dead than alive.
